  1. I’m looking for a way to spruce up my Science Curriculum by adding a lot of fun to it! This sounds like a perfect start. We are about to begin a unit on how Engineers solve problems. My kids love learning songs!

  2. I am continually looking for engineering problems for children of all ages. There is so much out there for K-8 graders but now am in the market to get high schoolers in the path towards STEM so when they plan to further their education they will choose STEM as their path. Please send me inexpensive information. Thank you

  3. We are fostering growth mindset in our district. I love the idea that students will learn processes too attack and solve problems. Once learned, those methods will hopefully be employed by kids in other areas as well.

  4. I work with a team of teachers using an integrated curriculum model in first grade. We follow NGSS science standards in a hands on fashion. Currently the students are exploring sound waves in order to build a sound device. After building the sound device following EDP method with a team of classmates, the students will develop a presentation to share the information with their parents in center style rotations. STEM is one are that all students can excel and shine.

  5. Introducing STEM to kids in after school programs like girl scouts and boys and girls club. I’m looking for ways to get these young children more motivated to learn how engineering can be fun as it incorporates the science the technology the engineering and the math. I hope I have the opportunity to win this. Thank you.
