While teachers and parents may not see the benefits clearly for another couple of years, using technology to enhance learning in kindergarten is actually a pretty wise decision. Adding a new wrinkle to early education can help promote inquiry in students, provide opportunities for collaboration, and help them start to develop both STEM and soft skills. So, if you ask us, the question isn’t really ‘should I use technology?’ - it’s ‘what technology should i use?’

We get new STEM products in our EdTech store every week. We don't always get ones this good, though. We've added two NEW and incredibly powerful 3D printers to the fold and they're each perfect for Maker Education! Whether you've got an eager team of high school inventors or an elementary-aged bunch of curious children, we have a FLASHFORGE or Lulzbot model that's right for you!
As we turn our attention towards making, we are starting to realize just how much there is to do in the world and many of us find ourselves wanting to take our ideas on the go. Perhaps born from the constant availability of mobile-friendly technology, we’ve all wondered ‘why be tied down to one place when I could be inventing in my own backyard?’ Joy Labz, creators of one of the original and most popular maker tools (the MaKey MaKey), has come up with an ingenious solution to this very problem: the MaKey MaKey GO!
The elementary years are a crucial time for students to build STEM skills that will serve them well in the future. Not only is it important they start developing a knack for hands-on problem solving with technology, this is also the time for them to start bolstering the soft skills, like communication, collaboration, and inquiry, as well.
Improvements in throey and practice can help spark impactful educational change, but it's knowing which tools to use and how to digitize the classroom effectively that helps education leaders launch lasting success.
We’re big fans of STEAM education. Like, really big fans. If you’re not familiar with what the A in STEAM stands for, or even the other four letters for that matter, STEM represents science, technology, engineering, and math with the A added in to represent art and create a more well-rounded 21st century education.

To create a legitimate STEM program in your school or makerspace, there's one thing that will put it over the top. We're talking about 3D printers. And, we're here to let you know that you're in luck. We just launched a special 3D printer page on our site and knew you'd love to be the first to know!
On Thursday, we hosted the first ever Eduporium VR event and we're happy to report that it was incredibly successful! We had a crowd that was larger than expected at Café Escadrille in Burlington, MA and tons of immersive learning in the form of presentations and virtual exploration. Attendees included educators and industry enthusiasts made up of VR experts and novices who all shared the same passion for exploring this amazing emerging technology and we thank everyone who came out for making it possible, especially our featured speaker, Caitlin Krause!
