Getting kids – and their caregivers – to practice STEM at home

There’s a deficit of engineering content within elementary school STEM curriculum. Content at this level tends to focus on mastering math and science concepts. 

We developed and are trying out a hybrid approach – with on-screen and off-screen time – that helps children learn engineering design practices at home. Our team of researchers will begin working with more local families in the states of New York and Indiana beginning January 2021. We are developing engineering kits that will use low-cost items, such as cotton balls and conductive tape, and household and recyclable materials. 

The goal is to develop families’ understanding of the design process before asking them to define a home or community problem and engineer a solution.

Lakota: Specials Find Special Place in Remote Learning

via Lakota Schools |

At a time when art, music, technology, exercise and creativity are a daily outlet to help offset the emotional toll of quarantine, Lakota’s “specials” teams are rallying to fuel their families’ idea banks.

Just as they do in a traditional learning environment, Lakota’s daily K-6 specials – art, music, gym, health, technology and STEAM – play a critical role in developing the whole child. Besides supporting social, emotional and mental health, they provide a creative outlet through which students can oftentimes apply their academic content.
