It is intimidating for many of us homeschooling parents to teach STEM subjects to our kids, but this free STEM Curriculum for K-12 will help! TeachEngineering covers many STEM subjects, from geometry to problem solving. You will never pay a fee, and you may choose which subjects to learn.
There is a need for STEM learners.
I’m sure you’ve heard that today’s graduates are lacking academic skills in STEM subject areas. You’ve likely also heard that those who have STEM knowledge will be in great demand in the future, and they’ll have some of the best paying jobs in the world. Of course, we homeschooling parents know well that not every child is alike; not every child will have an interest in science, math, and technology. Of our family’s four children, each has an interest in STEM, but only one has turned that interest into a passion for engineering. Even so, all four of them will use STEM, whether as a digital animator or a computer hardware builder (the current hobbies of our two youngest).
How to access the Free STEM Curriculum:
Visit TeachEngineering.org. There is no cost, and membership is not required. Simply visit, click on a unit, and begin using it!
Here are a few direct links:
- By subject area (subjects are organized into lesson plans and activities)
- Curricular Units (longer, multi-week groupings of lessons)
- Lessons (these include associated activities)
- Activities (stand-alone activities or part of lessons or units)
Here are some Free STEM (Science & Math) Activities & Games:
When my kids want to be on the computer, but I want them learning, they go to my collection of free learning activities & games .
Two of our favorite online games, in STEM subject areas, are these:
- free online science games, from the University of California
- free online multiplayer games, in math (and language) subjects
I’m really looking forward to sharing this one with my son who is a true inventor at heart!
Thanks for this one Lori! I should be able to find something here to interest my high-school age boys.
