The Sing About Science and Math website is a free database of lesson plans for incorporating music into STEM classes. To qualify for inclusion in the database, a lesson plan or instructor guide must ask students to interact with STEM music in some way beyond listening to the song or singing along to a prerecorded version. To view lesson plan listings, teachers can use the search form and select from one or more of the following subjects: Astronomy, Biology/Life Science, Chemistry, Earth Science, General Science, Math, and Physics/Physical Science. Students can view a STEMmusic video and then take a quiz to see what they learned. The recommended music videos are categorized as appropriate for elementary school (grades 3–5), middle school (grades 6–8), high school (grades 9–12), and college.
The award-winning Novel EffectiPadapp brings stories to life, promotes literacy, sparks imagination, and provides enjoyment for children aged 12 and under. The app follows the voice of users as they read aloud from children’s storybooks, and responds at just the right moment with music, sounds, and character voices.
CodeScty is an interactive learning experience designed to introduce young people to computational thinking and coding concepts through a cultural lens that they are familiar with. CodeScty’s tech-forward music education platform includes original hip-hopmusic, videos, and experiential learning activities to teach computer science principles and computational thinking to seventh- and eighth-grade students who are underrepresented in STE(A)M.
