Pedagogies that promote authentic student involvement are increasing as communities continue to grow and to change. In this manuscript, teacher candidates in an elementary education methodology class involving social studies and science instruction became engaged in a Science, Technology, and Society (STS) planning investigation to understand the impact science and technology have on society. Involving teacher candidates in the Science, Technology, and Society (STS) process through focusing on the impact of a local development, the teacher candidates became engaged and began to understand the impact science has on the community. Through the planning process, teacher candidates became aware of the importance of implementing STS investigations with future classes of elementary students to promote scientific literacy and responsible citizenship.
