STEAM, Robotics, and Coding Curriculum

Easy to implement in your class.... and we provide teacher professional development and support!!!

Our goal is simple: To create teaching and learning success stories, one student at a time. 

We help improve K-12 education so Every student has the opportunity to succeed in STEM!

Students love robots, so why not use them to engage students while teaching STEAM topics? We know teachers are busy and often don't have time to learn about robots and engineering while planning STEM or STEAM lessons. That's why we created curricula with robot kits to help teach STEM topics like Coding, Math, Algebra, Geometry, Physics, Physical Science, Computer Science, Electronics, and Mechatronics. And we address the A in STEAM by including drawing, music, writing, and other arts.  

The curriculum is online and the license is per course (only number of students signing in, not all students in the school). This provides flexibility for scheduling and substantial savings when compared to other STEM programs. The lessons are aligned to NGSS, Math, ELA, and CSTA standards, and teachers can choose lessons to focus on particular topics. Utilizing an inquiry-based format built on the Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate (5E) lesson model, students explore STEM through hands-on, applied technology and project-based learning (PBL).

Teachers can now use robots to engage students in coding.  With every robot package we provide lessons to teach coding - Blockly, Scratch, Python, Basic, C, or Java.  Students start learning sequence, events, and control with loops as early as 2nd grade and progress through each grade to learn more complex coding methods. By the time they graduate high school they are ready to apply skills to a job or progress into Computer Science, Engineering, or other STEM programs at a college or University.

Elementary teachers use lessons with robots in math, science, language arts, history, art, or in a learning lab or makerspace to engage students.The lessons include cross-curricula projects and provide performance task activities for Math test prep. The robots are pre-assembled which means it is fast to get started, and easy to move them from one class to another. This program will vary across districts based on rotation and number of students at the elementary school. Accessory kits provide everything needed to complete the lessons: batteries, chargers, math tools, drawing/art tools, and science tools
