K-12 CS/STEM Lab Stations

What is a STEM Lab? It's where students do hands-on learning. Think of it like a science lab but without all the custom equipment and special benches. Create a STEM lab in the back of a class, an old computer lab, a library, a cafeteria, or anywhere you have tables and chairs. At home; provide One to one robots with student lab stations in a plastic box for easy transport paired with online self-paced lessons accessed on a Chromebook, tablet, or laptop. 

CS/STEM Lab Stations are ready-to-go, turn-key STEM programs that include online Curriculum with printed Teacher Guide books, coding Apps, robots, spare parts, charging stations, plastic storage boxes with math tools, art materials, and accessories to complete hands-on activities and in-class competitions.  Students can work alone or in teams of 2 to 3. Purchase one Teacher Station and enough Student Stations to fit each class size. Use with existing Chromebooks, Tablets, laptops, or we can provide robot controllers ;-)

CS/STEM Lab Stations are great for classrooms, after school, makerspaces, camps, clubs, online learning and homeschool; with customized lesson plans for each. Teachers (or parents) don't have to be an expert in coding or engineering, those are included as step-by-step instruction. Lessons integrate math, science, technology, and coding with fun robots and hands-on activities. Ready to implement modular lesson plans with 15 to 25 minute activities, aligned to standards, provide 40+hrs of STEM fun, follow the 5-E learning model, includes videos, slides, handouts, worksheets, and assessments. Teachers are supported with personalized PD and technical support throughout the term.

PD and Support for Teachers

Teachers need more than just robots.  Science and Math teachers can integrate coding and engineering into classrooms, but only when they have the background knowledge, pedagogy and are supported with coaching sessions and integrated STEM lessons. PD and coaching is now available for educators on how to setup and conduct CS/STEM online courses. 

Exploring Robotics professional learning sessions help teachers collaborate together to create projects where robots and drones are used to engage students. Engineering design and computer science concepts are introduced along with project based learning (PBL) and the inquiry method of teaching. Tips are provided for how to organize classrooms, encourage group collaboration, and use the 5E model to teach science concepts.  

Professional learning sessions are in a blended format that is easy to schedule; using 1 to 2 hr live video chat and online resources. Teachers experience learning as students and walk away with ready to implement integrated STEM lessons and projects to apply science, math, and ELA in real-world scenarios with a robot or drone.

K-12 Coding and STEM Pathway

Your school can offer a complete online STEM K-12 Pathway, or fill in the gaps for grades that don't currently have STEM or coding solutions with Exploring Robotics Units in K-5 and Elective Courses in 6-12. One online course can often meet CTE requirements, CS K-12 requirements, plus the Physical Science and Engineering requirements for many states.

Each grade can have hands-on STEM labs that integrate the CSTA-K12 and NGSS standards into science and math with projects.  These robots, drones, and STEM kits are rugged for classroom use and have apps to fit the level of computer science concepts for each grade. 

This STEM pathway provides a progression of computer science and engineering design concepts. The lessons have been aligned to grade level math and science standards, to make it easier to implement as supplemental materials.

corona 19

We are with you and everyone that is doing their part to flatten the curve and help each other through this difficult time. Durning school shut downs, It is so important that students don't fall behind or lose interest in learning: especially STEM. STEM students will be the solvers of these big problems we face in the future.

We are ready with comprehensive robotic kits for at home learners grades K-12. Our curriculum is online and available for students to use on any device - whether at school or home. These kits help engage students with hands-on STEM and there are many hours of coding activities with each. 

Virtual STEM Class from Home

Teachers can offer a virtual robotics class during a 1 hour schedule to engage students in coding and STEM lessons from home. Students participate in self-paced online Integrated STEM lessons. Packages of robots and materials can be sent home with students (or shipped). 

Teachers and students can receive Free access to online STEM courses and discounts on our robots while schools are closed for COVID-19.  Parents who are taking on teaching roles outside of a classroom will also find discounted Home School packages to purchase separately. 

How it Works

  • Student STEM Lab Stations (Plastic storage boxes with a robot, math tools, writing and art materials) go home with students.
  • Teachers assign activities and students complete challenges each day.
  • Students access online lessons with step-by-step instructions and videos, complete the activities, fill out Google docs worksheets, and demonstrate their robot completing the challenge to teachers either with photos or videos. 
  • Math and Science are applied during the hands-on activities.
  • Technical support is provided for teachers via email, phone, and video conference.

  4. A device (tablet, chromebook, or laptop) is needed for students to access the lessons and the Apps for coding. 
  5. Most lessons require a robot to try out the coding. Schools can loan robots to students, or students can purchase separately.
  6. Worksheets are included as Google docs and are easy for students to fill in and turn in to teachers.
  7. Teachers will receive an access code for themselves and one for all their students to activate their accounts. We can set up login accounts for you, or you can use school email addresses to set them up. 
  8. Getting started guides are included, and we can also schedule professional learning sessions via Zoom video conference. 
  9. Teachers will send students a web link and access code - there is no login required to other systems. 
  10. The online site does not track student data. Teachers will keep separate grade books and students send in worksheets, reports or create videos of completed challenges to demonstrate completion.
