TpT believes that STEM education (the intersection of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is vital to the development and future of students, and of our world. In the technological age in which we live, STEM subjects can prepare children for successful careers and help them make a real difference.

On our social media accounts, we’ve been sharing various ways to include STEM in your daily lessons through resources, activities, blog posts, articles, and more. We’re so excited to see the positive response to the list so far, and we’re looking forward to sharing so many more as we continue the journey of “50 Ways to STEM.”

The first 10 of the 50 are listed below: Some link directly to STEM resources on TpT, others will take you to blog posts explaining how to execute various activities, and we’ve also shared informative articles and videos that highlight the importance of STEM in education.
