“This teacher PD and student workshop has been one of the most effective activities I have ever enrolled in!
First I was able to be trained by the experts at STEM Minds, and then as students followed a live instruction period, I was able to trouble shoot and problem solve.
The facilitator was expertly paced and the content was directly connected to the curriculum. Thank you for this extraordinary PD and classroom resource!”
“At the end of the workshop the first comment from my students was “when can we do this again?”
They not only enjoyed the workshop but came away with much more knowledge that they applied in a fun way!
I consider myself knowledgeable in terms of teaching coding, but what they learned from STEM Minds took it to another level!”
“Absolutely thrilled with the engagement of my class during the LEGO EV3 Robotics session through STEM Minds.
The students were dialed in from the first minute and followed along through initial simple instructions to extend their understanding of coding with growing independence.
The instructors were energetic and knowledgeable, and the students really enjoyed working with them. An absolute homerun for cooperative learning, student engagement, and exposure to STEM opportunities.”
