CJ STEMM Idol Speakers Oct. 22-23

Students will get a double dose of the popular CJ STEMM Idol Speaker Series on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 22-23, as two professionals present about the future opportunities in the science and engineering fields.

On Monday, CJ welcomes Kayla Ritter from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS). Students in all grades are invited to explore the program’s college, career and co-op opportunities during homeroom periods in room 237.

CJ STEMM Idol Speaker Joseph Kelly

October has been declared National Energy Awareness Month, and in recognition of the local, national and global issues surrounding the topic, CJ’s STEMM Idol Speaker Series welcomes guest presenter Joseph Kelly on Tuesday, Oct. 9.

Kelly, a young electrical engineer with the Dayton Power and Light Company (DP&L), recently graduated from Kettering University and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in the field of engineering management. At DP&L, his responsibilities include maintaining reliable service, accommodating for growth and working successfully with a team.

STEMM Idol Speaker Dr. Dieter Krewedl '61

The 2012-13 CJ STEMM Idol Speaker Series got rolling September 25, with a presenter considered a “rock” star in his field… Geology that is!

Dr. Dieter Krewedl, a 1961 alumnus, spoke with students about his experiences working as a minerals exploration geologist during all homeroom periods Tuesday afternoon. Krewedl shared information about the college and career possibilities available in field, as well as how he got his start.

STEMM Students Lead Way in Final Months

Projects, presentations, guest speakers, special exploration days and field trips filled the final two months of an exciting school year for CJ STEMM students. With the introduction of new fourth-year Project Lead the Way biomedical science and engineering electives last August, and nearing the one year anniversary of the program’s nationally certified status, the opportunities for Eagles interested in STEM career fields have never been more abundant.

Take a walk back through the activities from the last weeks of 2011-12 in the shoes of a CJ STEMM student:

STEMM Idol Speaker Richard Scudder

Students were invited to the CIL Tuesday, April 24 to learn more about the proliferation of unmanned aerial vehicles and systems, and their growing presence in the Dayton area, during this month’s STEMM Idol presentation.

Guest speaker and CJ parent Richard Scudder, director of the Center for Unmanned Aerial Systems Exploitation at the University of Dayton Research Institute, discussed the importance of the industry and its relevance locally. As the center’s inaugural director, Scudder leads the effort to prepare unmanned aerial vehicles for use both commercially and militarily.

Ooten Sharing Her Passion for PLTW

Science teacher Amanda Ooten has been selected by Project Lead the Way to become a Core Training Instructor for the organization’s Level 1: Principles of Biomedical Science course.

Core Training Instructors are appointed by Project Lead the Way (PLTW) to conduct the mandatory professional training and development courses for fellow teachers wishing to become certified PLTW instructors. Ooten, who also serves as co-chair of the CJ science department, will complete a one-year apprenticeship this summer in order to achieve Master Teacher status for the 2012-13 school year.
