Over the years, I’ve linked and saved quite a few (okay a LOT) of STEM resource webpages. These are pages directed towards one resource or sometimes a whole list of resources. I have not had time to do STEM as much as I have in the past. Plus I don’t think I should keep these all to myself! Some STEM websites are whole free curricula and some STEM resources are one site. Either way – I want people to realize there is a LOT of free resources out there.
Engineering Games and Projects – This website does say TitleMax I know. But they have a lot of websites towards the bottom I had never seen before. The top part is more career exploration.
STEM Games for Kids – Sourced from Maryville University
Denver Public Library IdeaLAB – Links and craft instruction cards at the bottom
STEM Challenges – Sourced from Vivify, you will need to sign up, but they do not spam me
STEM Curriculum – Sourced from Oregon State University for grades 4-12
TeachEngineering – Units, lessons and activities; you will find every grade and subject imaginable all free with printable worksheets
STEM Activities for Families – the Jet Propulsion Laboratory developed this database of activities
Lego and Hands-On Activities – Frugal Fun for Boys and Girls
NASA – 1,750 activities are listed in the NASA database. I would search for an “educator’s guide” if possible which yielded the most information such as this Rocket Unit that I based my STEM Camp on.
Mystery Doug – Encourage curiosity using brief science questions and answers from Mystery Doug
Activities Finder – K-12 activities; 345 activities; Paper and virtual activity; If you need an activity, Concord Consortium has you covered
Arts Integration – Here is a jackpot of all things STEAM! I am so excited to try out the cake lesson this year! Oodles of quality STEAM activities for K-12 that I’ve done in the past in other workshops and new activities like the cake lesson.
