Navy Scientists and Engineers challenge students to design, prototype, and pitch solutions to problems they face in their quest to drive innovation in a wide range of emerging fields, such as AI/machine learning, coastal change, cybersecurity, and medical response innovation.
Students (grades 8 and up) work in virtual or in-person teams, guided by design-thinking, prototyping, and iterative design scaffolds and prompts on the Scoutlier digital platform, which they can access on individual or shared devices (Chromebooks, laptops, tablets, mobile phones). Their work is visible in real-time to educators for coaching, and teams can request input and feedback from a rich mentor network. Solutions are shared with and recognized by Navy STEM career role models and the Rapid Innovation community. On-demand and virtual professional development and certification for teachers are available for this program.
Students and teachers explore important and urgent socio-emotional topics, concerns and strategies, and prepare for an uncertain school year, through safe and productive conversations and learning. They express themselves through work products that can be kept between them and their teacher or shared more broadly with their peers if desired and valuable.
Students (grades 5 and up) complete short (25-minute) lessons delivered through the Scoutlier digital platform in the classroom or virtually on individual or shared devices (Chromebooks, laptops, tablets, mobile phones) on topics ranging from Anger and Anxiety to Self Image and Advertising to Goal Setting and Team Building. Lessons are followed by in person or web-based classroom or one-on-one discussions reviewing work products and exploring ideas and concerns. On demand and virtual professional development and certification for teachers is available for this program.
Students role-play as teams of scientists, designing a way to save the Earth from an imminent collision with an asteroid. Leveraging their newfound subject matter knowledge in the physical sciences and engineering, they announce their solution to the world.
In this unit from Stanford University’s NGSS-aligned SCALE curriculum, students (grades 8 and up) build their mastery of subject matter in physics and geoscience and explore essential STEM skills such as hypothesis development and engineering design process. Students work individually and in teams as they investigate and build their knowledge base. As a capstone assignment, students work in the classroom or virtual teams and apply their new knowledge to design and test solutions to prevent the collision. Finally, they develop and share a news story that explains how they have saved the world from certain destruction. The curriculum is delivered in the classroom or virtually on Scoutlier’s digital platform using individual or shared devices (Chromebooks, laptops, tablets, or mobile phones). On-demand and virtual professional development and certification for teachers are available for this program.
Students become essential partners through scientific exploration in areas that are deeply meaningful to them and globally relevant. Led by researchers from the Naval Postgraduate School, the University of Georgia and Raytheon, they capture, analyze, and share data that is vital to the progress of active research programs.
Students (grades 8 and up) prepare and participate in field-based research and lab experiments in CA, MA, and RI. Guided by data protocols on the Scoutlier digital platform and coached by researchers, they collect, share and analyze data that contributes to the understanding of coastal change, natural resource management, and coastal security, by advancing our understanding of underlying physical processes, testing of new technologies, and supporting the training of deep neural networks that improve machine learning and automation necessary to innovate in these fields.
