|Summary:||The US government has developed a new curriculum using Global Positioning system (GPS) concepts and real-world applications to stimulate interest in STEM. Targeted for middle and high school levels, and designed to support the NGSS and Common Core learning standards, the curriculum features 12 inquiry-based lessons with projects and videos based around four module themes: Earth, space, life, and movement. The lessons, which can be used independently or as part of larger learning units, blend concepts with real-world applications and showcase a spectrum of cool STEM careers. Titles include I'm On My Way! Navigation and GPS; Living Weightless: The Space Station; Baby Is It Cold outside? Weather Forecasting; and Up, Up, and Away! Aviation Moves Us!|
