Robotics and circuitry are incredibly valuable fields of study at every grade level to prepare students for futures in STEM, engineering, and computer science. We've focused on providing students with foundational lessons and skills, as well as including open-ended STEM design challenges that get students thinking about how to apply what they've learned to real world challenges.
Technical Author, EE, CETa, Educator and Entrepreneur – Don Wilcher has written several great articles that showcase Snap Circuits® projects with real life use. In his blog series, THE INNOVATIVE EDUCATOR he has two great articles Personalized Learning and Individual Learning Plan.
Don states, “the overall goal of the Innovative Educator article(s) is to provide theoretical frameworks for teaching electrical-electronics technology through making.” Neat!
Many classrooms have Snap Circuits® kits sitting on shelves and in boxes going unused for a variety of reasons:
- Don't have the time to learn how to use them
- Not sure how to implement them into core-content
- We can’t afford to add more hardware kits
STEM Fuse has you covered!
STEM Fuse has core content lessons that integrate the hardware you already have! Our content is easy to use, affordable and the best part is, it works on any device and includes ongoing professional development to ensure that your hardware gets used! If you need more hardware, we can help with that too – with custom curated kits specifically created to be integrated easily into your class.
Our Snap Into Electronics course is a hands-on electronics project library for students in grades K-8. Each topic includes an introductory lesson, activity materials list, a Snap Circuits® project, and open-ended STEM Challenge for students to collaborate, create, and problem solve. The course includes a hardware kit complete with Snap Circuits® and Meeper components. Additional kits can be purchased for larger classrooms or as replacements.
Our STEM:IT ES with Robotics course is designed as a comprehensive library of topic-based challenges across core subjects of English Language Arts, math, science, social studies, AFNR (agriculture, food, natural resources), as well as robotics and circuitry.
And our STEM:IT MS with Robotics is designed as a comprehensive library of topic-based challenges across core subjects of English Language Arts, math, science, social studies, FACs, business, fine arts, AFNR (agriculture, food, natural resources), as well as robotics and circuitry.
STEM Fuse offers an amazing professional development course that marries perfectly with these courses! Our Snap Back In! professional development course is for educators to learn new and exciting ways to teach and utilize these great resources!
All our courses and resources follow the same recipe - easy to teach, engaging, tech-focused, and best of all - cost effective.
This allows us to offer custom solutions to all districts, no matter where they are at with their STEM, CTE, or ed-tech initiatives. Request a demo today.
