We believe that learning by doing inspires students to explore, investigate and create. By embracing the Maker Movement, educators tap into their students’ natural inclinations, allowing them to develop critical STEAM skills as well as an agile and resilient mind.
By adopting maker ideals educators put an emphasis on creating, discovering and promoting a growth mindset and builds key skills that will enable students to thrive in STEAM powered world.
A kit complete with materials, activity guides the Arduino 101* board and the Science Journal app from google allows you to explore making and scientific discovery through hands on projects.
An interactive selection of tools to inspire future scientists and makers. This kit includes a collection of parts SparkFun that support activities developed by Google and the Exploratorium in San Francisco.
Students will understand that a computer controls flashing lights and then create code and build a blinking light with an Arduino 101* board in one second intervals.
Students will discover how the mass of a projectile affects the distance it will travel when launched and understand the difference between potential and kinetic energy.
Students learn how to apply programming concepts to create a PIN-controlled lock using an RGB light combo and controlled by potentiometers.
Students will question whether a society with driverless or driver-assisted cars is desirable and how complex it is to create one.
Here are a few examples of supplies you’ll want to have on hand to get your Makerspace started.
A new digital science journal app allows kids to explore their world. With this app, kids can record data from sensors connected to an Arduino 101* board and learn scientific processes.
Maker Ed is a non-profit organization that supports and empowers educators and communities to facilitate meaningful making and learning experiences with youth.
