STEAM Lesson Planning at the Elementary Level

Putting the "A" (arts) in STEM allows for students to engage in creativity and design using science, technology, engineering, and math. STEAM is less about content and more about the process, and encouraging students to be innovative.

    Do not be frightened by the cost of these kits. Little Bits are invention kits that are grounded in STEAM and the design process. They are electronic invention kits that can be used with students of all ages-even first graders. Tech departments, principals, PTOs, and grants would easily fund these amazing hands on kits that are standards based. They can be used as a part of a STEAM club, or in any classroom.
