Become the Problem Solvers of Tomorrow
Whole-class, hands-on STEM Units enable upper-elementary students to make connections among the four areas of STEM learning. Each one-, two-, three-, or four-week unit incorporates science, technology, engineering, and math concepts into the activities. Students work in teams to brainstorm and solve problems, beginning to develop those transferable future-ready skills necessary in college and careers.
Designed to be flexible, the STEM Units can be incorporated in support of existing curriculum or as an entire course on their own. Units can be implemented individually or in Structures, Air, Electricity, or Magnetism themes. They fit into existing labs or classrooms and are easy for teachers to use and store.
STEM Unit Advantages:
- Connects math and science knowledge with real-world STEM applications
- Develops student confidence in their design abilities and idea generation
- Prepares students for more independent thinking in middle school
- Can be implemented in a variety of ways, offering maximum flexibility for teachers
Teachers are provided with everything they need to implement the units including curriculum resources and materials to complete the hands-on activities.
