Steven Jones

Hauser Jr. High
STEAM Facilitator
Steven Jones is a STEAM Facilitator at Hauser Jr. High in Riverside Illinois, ISTE STEM Co-Chair, and IDEA Illinois Western Suburbs Vice President and Governing Board Representative. Using his own curriculum, he teaches a wide variety of STEAM classes to students in 6th through 8th grade. A common theme among all classes is that students work through authentic learning experiences. Students learn CAD through applications like Tinkercad and Fusion 360, as well as additive manufacturing skills. They also work through numerous small projects that involve design thinking, prototyping, and using the engineering design process to solve problems. For 7th grade students that are interested, they can focus on artificial intelligence, Tinkercad Codeblocks, and physical computing with Arduino Uno. Before moving on to high school, 8th graders can also learn about entrepreneurship and subtractive manufacturing. Steven is excited to share his skills and collaborate with educators through the STEM PLN and beyond.
