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 November.
Camp Invention, a program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF), in partnership with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, provides a unique experience for youth to make discoveries about the importance of intellectual property while exploring, creating, and designing. The program promotes STEM learning; builds leadership, perseverance, and resourcefulness; and encourages entrepreneurship.
The USA Mathematical Talent Search (USAMTS) is a free mathematics competition open to all US middle school and high school students. Unlike most mathematics competitions, the USAMTS allows students a full month, or more, to work out their solutions.
Crazy Gears from Edoki Academy gets children to think critically and explore physics and other STEM topics. This puzzle-like app for iOS asks students to construct gears to find a way to “pull themselves to the next level.”
The Technology Student Association (TSA) is a national nonprofit organization of middle school and high school students who are engaged in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Since TSA was chartered in 1978, almost 4,000,000 student members have participated through competitions, intracurricular activities, leadership opportunities, community service, and more.
