STEM Activity App

STEM Activity App | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

Aspire Institute was created to advance knowledge and solutions in response to social and educational challenges. We believe the STEM Activity App does just that. STEM education is growing more important every year, yet many students lose interest before middle school. This app was designed, and continues to be improved, in an effort to help teachers and families encourage their students and children to love learning about STEM. Together, we can inspire the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians!

8 Great STEM Apps For Younger Students | Edudemic

8 Great STEM Apps For Younger Students | Edudemic | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

by Kati Lepi

 

"When I think of STEM – especially the science and engineering arms of the equation – I too often think of the higher end, more complicated stuff. The cool, hands-on science experiments involving fire and acidic liquids. Building and programming robots. Unfortunately, this thought process often yields activities that are either too complicated or not age-appropriate for younger students.

 

"That doesn’t mean that there isn’t cool stuff out there for younger kids studying STEM subjects. Many apps that address STEM material are specifically geared towards younger learners, making them perfect to expose kids to STEM without being too complicated or overwhelming. We’ve selected eight of our favorites (two apps for each aspect of STEM) to share with you here. If you have a favorite STEM app that we haven’t included here, tell us about it by leaving a comment below, mentioning @Edudemic on Twitter or leaving your thoughts on our Facebook page."

Edelin Espino's curator insight, December 13, 2014 3:17 PM

Google is always a step ahead of any other online page so it is not surprising that Google have some countries in dispute because they can see people can see the political status of a country in Google map but that might change the way we see and think about Google and countries with dispute. Google or the Internet will always be a good help for people to be able see what is happening between country's borders.

Not just for teaching kids to properly cite sources- hopefully it creates a habit of checking the validity of information you find on the internet (aka, no more blindly reposting/retweeting inaccurate info masquerading as fact).
