Resources for Educators
Science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) pervade all aspects of our lives. Science is everywhere in the world around us. Technology is continuously expanding and improving the lives of people everywhere. Engineering is the foundational innovative building blocks that help to tie all of these subjects together. Art teaches us about the freedom of creative expression and has the power to influence culture and community. Mathematic principles are in quite literally every occupation and every activity we do!
Our makerspaces offer an ever-growing library of STEAM resources to support educators, caregivers, and makers not only in the classroom and in our makerspaces, but also at home. Education is at the heart of our mission, and in response, we offer everything from hands-on informal education for makers of all ages to lesson plans and professional development for educators. As a participant in any of our makerspaces, you have access to a wealth of resources and digital tools that support inquiry-based learning and active engagement. Join us and help to spark your students' creativity and curiosity.

Workshops aren't just for the school-aged crowd, y'know. For STEAM educators, having hands-on experience with the concepts you teach can be paramount. We’ll teach special in-depth workshops to groups of educators who are looking to foster a deeper understanding of how innovation is growing and changing rapidly in the 21st century.
