Amazing course for educators seeking ways to introduce STEM to their curriculum. This course is also a great for STEM educators who would like to expand their current curriculum. My only recommendation is to be prepared to purchase the Tinkering kit which will allow you to apply learned concepts during the session.

Excellent course, I am looking forward to a part 2.

This is a great class for learning the nuances of tinkering. We have become so focused on teaching our kids about making things, we've forgotten the fun and educational aspect of just fooling around with things wires, wood, and cardboard, and seeing what we can do with them.

Good one

It's a interesting approach about how to teach and to learn in STEAM subjects.
