STEM in Action Kits are the easy-to-implement solution for integrating science, math, literacy, and engineering skills within real-world problems. All STEM kits were developed in partnership with Texas A&M University and/or Purdue University.
Hands-On Standards STEM in Action addresses national and state standards in Science, Math, and ELA with teacher-friendly modules that follow the Engineering Design Process. The STEM projects in this series strikes the perfect balance of rigor and ease-of-use.
Each STEM in Action module includes teacher resources, activities, and materials for six small groups to work on a STEM activity.
4 activities, each 20 minutes per day
5–8 lessons, each 30 minutes or less per day
5–8 lessons, each 60 minutes per day
Take your first steps toward teaching STEM with smaller-sized introduction modules. Each module includes enough materials for 30 students and 180 minutes or less of instruction time.
