Week 2 K-12 Care Package Launched on Invention

We are happy to announce that the Lemelson-MIT Program has created a package of fun invention activities and videos for the Full STEAM Ahead initiative! You can find them here on our Week 2 page. We invite you to take advantage of the time you may be spending at home by gathering any tools and reusable materials you already have and diving into the activities we have on this site. If you have questions along the way, you can post them on the site’s online forum.

Happy Inventing!

Inventive Learning

We wanted to let you know that next week’s K-12 learning package should be exciting, and is nearly here.

On Monday we’ll invite you to join us in a one week exploration of invention education – a transdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning the unique ways inventors find and solve problems that matter. Hands-on activities, videos and online resources will help young people of all ages start down a pathway to invention!

Keep an eye out for launch on Monday, March 30.

K-12 and Higher Ed Resources

In the first few days we’ve seen thousands of visitors arriving on Full STEAM Ahead. Welcome to everyone. We wanted to point out that in addition to the weekly K-12 projects, that we also have additional K-12 resources, and resources for higher education as well.

Some of those resources are growing rapidly. There is a weekly BLOSSOMS challenge that you can find on that page.

The forums are open for conversation and support. We are monitoring these and will be staffing with some volunteer contributors soon.

We hope you find these useful.

Week 1 Package and Challenges Announced

The week 1 K-12 package is all about COVID-19. We aim to help people of all ages understanding these confusing times and empower them to think critically about how they can help. There are materials for students in different grades from elementary through high school. We will be launching these packages every Monday.

Here is a link to the information for this week including the activities and challenges. . .

Welcome to Full STEAM Ahead at MIT

Welcome to the Full STEAM Ahead, a production of MIT JWEL. We are aiming for launch on March 23, 2020. The site will contain resources for K-12 teachers and students as well as adults and lifelong learners. The resources are being made available to the world to provide learning opportunities in a time when teaching is being impacted greatly by the COVID-19 pandemic.
