This cool looking car -- the GoPiGo Robot from Dexter Industries -- is a great way to help students advance their coding skills. It's buildable, so they get the engineering aspect of STEM education and, once they have it built, it's programmable over a simple Wi-Fi connection! The single GoPiGo kits are great for children at home, but the Classroom Packs are phenomenal for teachers who want to give each one of their students the gift of coding!
Not enough space or money for a 3D printer? A 3D pen is the next best thing! There are a variety of brands out there, but few are as educationally inclined as the 3Doodler. The 3Doodler has a range of products, fit for beginners to pros, including the Start, Create, and PRO pens, as well as tons of educational resources on their site to get teachers and students printing right away. No matter your subject area, 3D printing can instantly add an engineering, design, and artistic element to your teaching.
On the 12th day of techXmas, Eduporium gave to you...three extra days! If you’ve ever explored our site (if you haven’t, now is a pretty good time), you’ve likely seen hundreds of different EdTech tools, including some for every single age group and ones that cover just about every STEM area imaginable. You also may be familiar with the song about the 12 days and the partridge in the pear tree. Well, we’ve got a beneficial technology gift for each of the 15 days of techXmas and, hopefully, you can learn a great deal about each of these tools that we recommend kids use all year long.
Most of the time, the best part of hands-on learning is the collaboration that comes with it. Thanks to the classroom packs recently added by Wonder Workshop, that remains the case. Over the last few years, the Dash and Dot robots have helped students code, create, and become Future Ready with their engaging activities and energetic personalities. Now, they're taking things up a notch and empowering teachers to facilitate real-world collaboration right in their classrooms thanks to the addition of new kits designed to increase savings and launch greater student success!
New Matter’s MOD-t is one of our favorite simple and affordable 3D printers. It is the ideal first 3D printer for beginners due to its accessibility and ease of use. Its enclosed and clear design is perfect for students because it’s safe, quiet, and the print can be seen from all angles. Perhaps most importantly, it’s also relatively small and easy to pick up, creating a portability aspect that most 3D printers lack. Don’t let its sleek design fool you, though. The MOD-t is completely user-friendly with only one button to press. It also prints with eco-friendly PLA filament and is WiFi-enabled, so kids can print from any device that’s connected to the Internet.
