First, through my internship, I hope to gain a deeper understanding of the design process and witness the process from start to finish in a setting that uses it for daily function. From that, I hope to gain insight and knowledge on how to successfully incorporate the design process and other STEM career-based skills and thought-processes into my classroom. This will help me to lead my students toward more successful futures by providing them with rich, authentic learning experiences and instilling a passion and love for learning. Overall, through my experience, I hope to incorporate best practices to STEM-based approaches into my classroom so that my students will not only have an interest, but a solid foundation for these processes. Providing students with these foundational building blocks will be critical for their desire to learn more in the future, and ultimately their desire to contribute to an ever-changing society.
