Michael Holst (Chehalis School District: Chehalis, WA); Christy Wood (East Valley Central Middle School: Yakima, WA); and Kim Abegglen (Hodkinson Middle School: Brush Prairie, WA) worked together post graduation from NASA Endeavor to share their work integrating STEM in their classrooms. Presenting in the Building Bridges within STEM Education strand, they developed a hands-on presentation titled: "Ways to STEM-ify Activities from NASA Project Endeavor Fellows." Attendees created Spaghetti and Marshmallow towers and modeled the Engineering Design Process and the Endeavor team discussed how Endeavor course work and its philosophy for STEM weaves into current practice. Participants left the session with helpful STEM resources and ideas for integrating the Engineering Design Process.
