Learn About Oswego KidsTech

June 07, 2022

Oswego KidsTech is a community outreach program in which technology education majors at SUNY Oswego plan and teach STEM activities and lessons for elementary-aged children, who sign up for four 90-minute STEM based activities and lessons each semester. STEM 4 Kids is for K-3 and Young Inventors is for Grades 4-6. We applied for and received funding from National Grid to update curriculum offerings to align with the Standards for Technological and Engineering Literacy (STEL). In our 10th year of successful programming, we re-envisioned our programs to have both a greater impact on the teaching/planning skills of our technology education majors and more fully expose participating children/parents to all eight STEL Technology and Engineering Contexts (TECs). Our new articulated K-6 program may have implications for K-12 alignment with the STEL TECs. This past academic year we were able to offer both an on campus and a remote learning option for children all over NY State. Overall, 36 Technology Education Majors in Teaching Methods for Technology Education (TED 306) provided 159 elementary-aged children from Oswego County and remotely throughout NY State with thirty-two 90-minute unique STEM-enrichment lessons and activities. A liberal estimate of the 2021-22 STEM lesson/activity hours of participating children is 954. To learn more about the our community outreach programs visit:
