The SMILE program was designed to enhance the elementary and high school learning of Science and Mathematics through the use of the phenomenological approach. For a brief course description/syllabus, click here. For a brief history of the course, click here.
Between 1986 and 1997 each summer session participant was asked to create and publish a single concept lesson plan. These lesson plans include the materials needed, a suggested strategy and expected outcomes. There are currently almost 900 of these lesson plans available (see subject indices below). In addition, starting in 1997 the participants in the academic year program have been asked to present a brief single concept lesson or idea. Summaries of the academic year lessons are at academic year notes. All of these lessons are available in the following formats:
A CD-ROM with all of the lessons (summer and academic year) and links from both this and the SMART web sites for $15.00US to a US address ($20US outside the United States). Contact Roy Coleman at Morgan Park High School for availability.
Listings by subject are available by linking to any of the following:

This document includes Key Questions, Activity Objectives, and Concept Words (key vocabulary) for each unit. This document may be very helpful for school curriculum planning. The other links redirect to pages that provide a short description of the units and the suggested length of time to teach the unit.
No need to revise your entire curriculum. We have hundreds of student activities and products with STEM applications in physical, earth, and life science. Use our labs and products to reinforce the Science and Engineering Practices in the Next Generation Science Standards. Flinn's student lab kits actively engage students in scientific inquiry, which leads to a greater understanding of crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas.
See some of the STEM related products Flinn has for the following categories.
Offers free worksheets and lesson plans for a range of grades on various topics in chemistry, physics, Earth science, math skills in science, and meteorology. Resources for science fairs and family science nights and for enforcing basic science skills are among those available, and archived experiments range from the Fizzics of Soda to the Thanksgiving Egg Drop. You can find an experiment for nearly every holiday!
Intel believes that young people are the key to solving global challenges.

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is used to identify individual subjects, a stand alone course, a sequence of courses, activities involving any of the four areas, a STEM-related course, or an interconnected or integrated program of study. A nationally agreed upon definition for STEM education is currently lacking. This page and the links on it provide information and resources for kindergarten through grade twelve STEM education.
