The world has changed, and education needed to change, too. We changed how the students learn. We changed what they learn. That meant changing where they learn.Adrienne Turbeville, Content Literacy Support Teacher; Pine Grove Middle School, East Syracuse NY
The relationship between the educators at Pine Grove Middle School and Siemens isn’t simply that of customer and supplier. Siemens partnered with East Syracuse Minoa Central School District to transform the curriculum to help students develop their STREAM (Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Arts and Math) knowledge, as well as problem-solving and presentation skills and abilities.
The FUSE Lab looks so different from a traditional classroom. It’s busy and loud; it can be a bit much, honestly, but when you look closely at what’s happening, every single student is busy solving problems and talking about what they are learning.Alexis Mason, Teacher and FUSE Facilitator South Valley Junior High School, Gilbert AZ
South Valley Junior High was ready for a new approach to student learning opportunities. With a student-centered, inquiry-based approach, the FUSE program was a perfect fit. And so, Siemens awarded the school a $26,000 grant to implement the FUSE program, which included the FUSE software program, as well as a 3D printer. Today, the inspired program is engaging students and encouraging tomorrow’s leaders.
