Standards-Driven Curriculum


MyStemKits offers hundreds of standards-driven lesson plans for grades K-12 math and science teachers. These high-quality lessons plans are developed and studied by The Florida Center for Research in Science. Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (FCR-STEM), which is part of one of the nation's oldest and most productive university-based education research organizations.


With a focus on preparing students for the challenges of an ever-changing world, these professionals develop cross-curricular lesson plans that tackle real-world challenges to force the students to pursue deep thinking. Great for both classrooms and informal learning environments!

STEM Design Challenges


Using 3D printers to help teach STEM subjects in engaging and effective ways is just the beginning. MyStemKits also offers a comprehensive series of Design Challenges which teach students design thinking, problem solving, and even 3D modeling so that they can develop the skills and tools necessary for success in the 21st century.



Levels



Basic


These lessons presuppose zero experience using 3D modeling software and provides step-by-step instructions on how to build simple objects to get students comfortable working and thinking in three dimensions.


Intermediate


Expanding on the skills learned in the Basic Design Challenges, these step it up a notch and help students create more complex shapes using the advanced tools available in the software.


Advanced


For students who are already comfortable working in 3D space, these open-ended design challenges allow them to fully utilize their creativity to solve, design, build, and implement solutions to real-world problems.


MyStemKits provides Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced design challenges at every grade level 3-12* so that whatever age students may be when they take on 3D modeling, they'll be able to have the tools and challenges necessary to guide their journey.


*Some activities may be done at lower grades, but will require more supervision and/or assistance with reading.

Concepts


In each Design Challenge, students are recruited by an individual who needs their help, whether it's aerospace engineer Sofia who needs models of space station modules or film director Marc who needs to recreate a lost file, students will be challenged to create and customize files according to specific needs.


Moreover, each activity integrates math and science concepts such as measuring, geometry, and precision. Additionally, the finished products can be used to supplement grade-appropriate math and science activities.
