The secret to learningTM Make. It. Fun.. Facilitate creative problem-solving, combining electronic building blocks with approachable drag-and-drop block programming with this kit. It brings coding into the real world, keeps students hyper-engaged as they build and play their own fun games, and gives them a foundation of coding as a creative tool that can power innovative inventions. Students get started inventing four interactive games: tug-of-war, hot potato, ultimate shootout, and rockstar guitar. From there they can customize the code, and even create new, unique inventions and games. During gameplay, students develop coding & engineering skills as they embrace failure, think critically, make their own rules, and collaborate. Plus, the kit was co-designed with teachers, for teachers. This ensures it's easy to integrate into any curriculum, makerspace, or library, and aligns to Next Generation Science Standards & Computer Science Standards.

Physical Science: Forces on objects
Build understanding of slopes, surfaces, and graphing. Students explore slopes and surfaces as they are challenged to build a ramp that allows Ron, a skateboarding armadillo, to go far—but not too far. By using critical thinking, communication, and collaboration to build a ramp, students prepare for essential skills of the 21st century. Students work through the Engineering Design Process – to learn the value of rethinking and supporting multiple solutions.
STEM in Action modules are the easy-to-implement PreK-5 solution for integrating science, math, literacy, and engineering skills into real-world problems. These modules focus on the Engineering Design Practice which is a critical component of NGSS, state standards, and national initiatives. The materials are teacher friendly and all come in an easy-to-store box.
