Look What They're Saying!

"This new program allows students to access STEM, hands-on and with relevant lessons! The materials needed are something that students will have access to at home. The video is informational and frequently recaps which is necessary to help students comprehend the information being taught. This lesson also reaches students of so many different learning types. Not only are you reaching kinesthetic learners but also the visual and auditory learners. The program is easy to complete on any device but most importantly relates to topics that students will love! - Kelly Houser, 6th Grade Science Teacher, Rosemore Middle School,Whitehall School District, OH

"This STEM online learning course is incredible! I’m impressed. There’s a lot of explanation, with words on the screen for the kids to follow along. There are pictures which helps visual learners too! I really like how the teacher demonstrates everything so the kids can see what he’s doing (like a teacher in a classroom). This is also really important, especially for the inertia lesson, because not everyone will have a balloon at home— at least here they can watch the video to see what would happen! The game they play after each lesson is engaging and fun! It’s a great way to review."- Rebecca Brust, 3rd Grade Teacher, NYC Schools, Chelsea, NY

"This STEM online learning course is great! I love that there is a clear explanation to help students follow and understand.
I think this is an awesome resource to use with visual and tactile learners. My favorite part of this course is that students can pause and rewind the lesson which is not possible in person. I think it is excellent that the lessons are demonstrated with the resources shown so that students can follow along even if they do not have the resources at home during this time. Students will be engaged and entertained simultaneously." 
-Stephanie Mkrtchyan, 7&8 Grade Teacher, Ozone Park, NY
