NASA Explorer Schools just informed me that they will be utilizing my Graduate Work on Robotics. I am thrilled and would also like to share my link if anyone is interested in trying it in your classroom. Middle School based or it could be used for awesome links to introduce robotics, robots and spce exploration, history, future missions and nasa career inspiration.

Robotics Jigsaw Activiry:

They are also recommending my k-2 technology infused weather unit which includes a stem resource page:

the pages after this one includes all resources for the different subjects.

Thanks for allowing to me share. I hope you find some of this usefull in your classroom.

Check out the collaborative science projects in ePals at: http://www.epals.com/projects.

  • Climate Change
  • Habitat
  • Natural Disasters
  • Weather
  • Water

They are all designed for collaboration between your class and another class--ideally in another country. The projects are co-designed with National Geographic and free for schools to use. (You can also get basic SchoolMail free to use with your class, one of the most powerful student email systems that exists, with NO advertising.)

Also, three teachers (in St. Louis, Philippines and Turkey) collaborated on a project on natural disasters and severe weather, and you can see more about it here:

If you have done a great collaborative STEM project, submit it to ePals to be a featured teacher! You have to be a registered ePals teacher (free to join the Global Community) to submit your project and be featured on the site.

Hi, I'm a middle school science teacher in NJ, and I am very much interested in doing collaborative STEM projects with other teachers. I would also like to know about seminar-workshops on STEM programs.
