We’re excited to announce a new update to the printing capabilities of our award-winning Robo E3 3D printers – you can now print directly from Tinkercad! Tinkercad is a free web app for 3D design, electronics, and coding. Teachers everywhere use Tinkercad to help get them started with 3D printing in their classrooms.
In this lesson, our STEM MimioMaster Meredith Williams shares a common experience for many teachers – starting instruction with one topic but totally switching to another.
The years have zipped by, and it still surprises me that I’m in my seventh year of teaching! In these seven years, I’ve taught grade 6 and grade 8 science - Life Science, Physical Science Honors, Comprehensive 1, and Comprehensive 3 Science. Currently, I’m enjoying my 8th grade science classes and have the privilege of serving as the Science Department Lead at my school. Teaching has been an experience, and science has always been a part of my life. I definitely have a passion for it!

In this lesson, our STEM MimioMaster Meredith Williams shares how she used the MyStemKits Moths Kit to introduce Dr. Kettlewell’s Peppered Moth investigations on natural selection (for more information on Dr. Kettlewell’s work, click here).
Elisabeth McClure, Gifted Specialist with the Northwest School District (House Springs, MO), recently completed a months-long project that originated with identifying real-life problems in their community. The goal of the project was to help her students envision themselves as part of the creative solution process, as well as spark their interest in community-related issues they can take an active role in solving.
There are positive benefits that interactive, hands-on education has on learning such as providing students with multiple opportunities to see the world beyond the classroom walls via real-world connections. STEM education has influenced how teachers guide their students to identify real-world problems, research and design practical solutions, and collaborate and communicate their ideas with others. A STEM tool that has become a familiar fixture in many classrooms and school makerspaces is the 3D printer.
J.K. Hileman Elementary School in Queen City, TX recently purchased Robo E3 3D printers and MyStemKits standards-driven STEM curriculum. After a half-day training in October, one teacher quickly jumped in to use this award-winning STEM solution. Let us introduce you to Haley Williams.
October is a great month for creating hands-on, engaging, and fun learning experiences where your students can get their hands dirty! Not only is the weather pleasant in much of the world, October has both National Fossil Day in the United States (October 13th) and International Archaeology Day (October 16th). All of these components make for a perfect opportunity for your class to really dig into learning.
