Full Steam Ahead

Full Steam Ahead

Our STEAM kits are designed to support educators who teach science, technology, engineering, art and math—STEAM—concepts in the classroom.  Check one out to give your students an opportunity to explore, imagine, and learn while developing 21st century skills.

You will find tools, books, and programming ideas appropriate for grades K-6 included in each kit.  Moreover, the kit can accommodate an entire classroom working in small groups of 3-5 students or 7-10 students working independently.

Get one for your classroom!
