Abstract

The future holds great promise for individuals who are skilled in STEM areas; thus, it is critical to determine if students with special needs participating in inclusion classrooms are gaining the knowledge base and affinity necessary for a STEM career. A STEM-related unit of instruction covering the solenoid was included in the curriculum of one school in order to measure the effect of participating in that instruction on the students’ knowledge and feelings about STEM. Students with special needs did demonstrate a gain in knowledge comparable to general classroom students. Although the number of respondents was too small for analysis, a trend towards positive attitudes for a STEM career was observed.
