K8 MEMES: K-8 Maritime Education Modules to Engage Students

This education development project will create entertaining, informative, and STEM promoting "plug-and-play" curriculum learning modules for K-8 educators, using maritime transportation and infrastructure related topics to teach STEM concepts. Coupling music memory, fun STEM theories, and innovative experiential demonstrations into entertaining video learning modules, the objective of this project is to open the door for student excitement in learning of science topics and to develop a new virtual learning paradigm that: (1) excites curiosity, (2) engages alternative cognitive processes, and (3) promotes future engagement in the STEM areas.
