Tips for Group Management during STEM
  • The most effective strategy for managing a group during STEM is being completely prepared to do the STEM activity ahead of time. This frees you up from worrying about the activity and can focus on the STEM learning.
  • Be consistent, firm, supportive and fun when leading a group doing STEM.
  • Have strategies for getting and keeping youths’ attention. Call and responses work well.
  • Give youth roles using a fair system. Encourage youth to help you create this system and follow it when designating leaders, supply getters, etc.
