Why bring STEM into this classroom? Because it creates problem solvers! STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. STEM skills allow students to identify problems and use a logical approach to find a solution. STEM is more than content; it’s a way of thinking and doing.
STEM:IT Elementary is a supplementary program that uses core curriculum topics to introduce how STEM skills are needed and used in every subject. Students are also given a challenge in each lesson to utilize their problem solving skills.
Each lesson includes a step-by-step guide for the teacher, cross curricular ideas, and presentations that are fun and informative. Each topic contains the lesson presentation, a coding lesson presentation that ties in with the topic and a 3D lesson presentation.
Standards are listed in the Teacher’s Guide for what is covered in the lesson. All lessons are user friendly and take no extra training to teach.
