Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in March.
The SparkFun Community Partnership Program facilitates one-time collaborations between SparkFun and its community partners to support the work of makers in the field. In exchange for support through the donation of SparkFun hardware, community partners provide content for SparkFun’s channels to share their stories with the maker community at large.
The Goldenrod Research Corporation supports hands-on technology in the classroom through its YouthTouch STEM Grant. Hands-on technology education tools bring mathematics and science to life for schools that then become pilot or referral sites for YouthTouch.
Students interested in science concepts such as robotics and bioengineering have a new, freeonline game at their disposal. Arizona State University researchers have released Frankenstein200, a game that uses Mary Shelley’s tale of scientific hubris to get children thinking about such ideas as robotics, bioengineering, and humans’ reasons for creating.
