Can't find time for STEM/Maker activities in your over-crowded curriculum? Use a few minutes of time each month in order to provide great STEM experiences. You can also use STEM activities to help students develop skills such as collaboration, listening, and technical reading.

Perhaps you feel that including a Maker Experience for students requires a room with 3D printers, laser cutters, expensive robots, and the like. Nothing could be further from the truth! While those things are certainly nice to have, there’s tremendous value in working with your hands and making outside of the digital realm.
Electrify your MAKER SPIRIT! Get hands-on experience building electromagnets, super simple motors, galvanometers, telegraphs, and solenoids -- all with simple materials. Experience how the incredible scientist Michael Faraday, in the early 1800s, made our modern world possible and how you might progress to Tesla Tuesdays or Toricelli Thursdays in the future! You'll get directions and some tips on writing successful grant applications to purchase batteries and other tools and materials. In addition, you’ll receive a starter kit with enough materials for your Tech Club or classroom.
