STEM Curriculum - Available now!

 

 

STEM Curriculum – Applied CNC STEM Activities – are available now!

 

 

Ask a group of students if they would rather listen to a lecture or work together to construct a mechanical toy, and the answer is obvious. Educators know that hands-on, interactive education is one of the best ways to captivate their students but the tools and resources aren’t always available. Identifying this need for a high quality STEM curriculum, the In-House Solutions Book Development Team buckled down and created it.

 

More than just books, Applied CNC STEM Activities are complete project packages that engage students and give instructors all the tools they need. The projects follow guidelines and requirements set by several renowned organizations and aligns to national standards.

 

Note: All Instructor course material contains tests and answer keys. To ensure the integrity of the material we ask that you complete this Contact Form at which time a representative will be in contact with you to take your order. Student editions can be purchased here on eMastercam at anytime.
