  1. How to Bring More STEM to Remote Learning in 2021

    How to Bring More STEM to Remote Learning in 2021
    We understand that there is more on the plates of educators than ever before, but we also realize that teaching STEM skills and subjects is still continuing in many cases. For that reason, we’re happy to extend the expertise of the Eduporium team and offer consultation for any STEM teacher, tech specialist, or other faculty member who might benefit.

    Eduporium Weekly | STEM Kits with Curriculum
    Educators are often looking for STEM or robotics kits with curriculum. Since there are typically so many possibilities when it comes to open-ended invention and exploration with STEAM tools, it can sometimes be tough to narrow down the most helpful projects. With these STEAM solutions, teachers can find curricular connections and reliable projects.

  4. Makerspace in the Classroom: How we Can Help you Start

    If you’re looking for makerspace ideas for libraries in elementary school, high-tech high school fab labs, or just a way to repurpose some old materials, it helps knowing how to get started. There’s no specific formula for how to make a makerspace, but over the years, we’ve become increasingly in tune with what educators are looking for in terms of both MakerEd technologies and implementation guidance. While it’s great to incorporate some of the more powerful options for makerspace technology, we know that maximizing your budget is also a huge factor and, with that in mind, our team has become adept at assisting educators in finding, attaining, and maximizing their makerspace wish lists – and we’d love to help you launch a new makerspace or redesign the innovation area currently in your school.

  6. Reinventing STEAM Education and Fighting COVID19 with LulzBot

    Finding a way to keep STEM learning and the maker spirit alive has been challenging for educators as they’ve spent the last few months dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. When schools first started to shut down, we saw how STEM and MakerEd really began to take a back seat in favor of more traditional educational requirements as teachers tried to find a rhythm in remote learning. At the same time, however, we – and plenty of others – knew just how important and beneficial STEM learning could continue to be despite the enormous challenge of finding time to teach it and finding a way to make it hands-on, which was nearly impossible. With the help of one of our partners, however, and the commitment from a group of educators we work with, one STEM project was born because of – and despite – the rapidly spreading pandemic last spring.
