We’ve got great news! The award-winning MyStemKits STEM curriculum, a Boxlight MimioSTEM solution, is now aligned with Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for Mathematics and Science. What does this mean? Teachers in Texas who are planning integrated, innovative, hands-on STEM lessons and activities don’t have to look further than MyStemKits.com to find them!
Hannah Olson, MimioSTEM Product Manager and Co-Founder of MyStemKits, says, "We are so excited that our hundreds of STEM lesson plans are now aligned to the Texas mathematics and science standards. We know this will save the teachers time so they can focus on making a difference in the lives of their students!"
MyStemKits lessons were developed to help students in grades K-12 to explore and experience STEM with hands-on components that build and strengthen 21st-century skills such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. Many of the lessons also include a Teacher’s Guide, assessments, and worksheets to help teachers maximize instructional time so that it’s spent learning versus planning. Olson comments, "Providing high-quality, engaging content for our STEM products has always been the priority at MimioSTEM and we are proud that our standards-driven lesson plans are now fully aligned to TEKS. Teachers can now search for lesson plans directly by their standards and find them easily so that they can use their time to focus on their students.”
Here’s a glimpse of what teachers in Texas will find to amp up their integrated STEM instruction:
MyStemKits can be used with a variety of STEM hardware such as 3D printers, robotics, and sensors. There are over 400 lessons available for teachers to select from, and new activities and lessons are added regularly!
