MakerBot 3D Printing
3D printing is a revolutionary technology that bridges the gap between imagination and reality. During STEAM Week, participants will have the opportunity to explore the world of MakerBot 3D printing. This hands-on experience will allow students to bring science, math, and engineering concepts to life in tangible, 3D forms. Whether it's creating geometric shapes, architectural models, or intricate scientific prototypes, MakerBot 3D printing is a powerful tool to unlock innovation.

pi-top Robotics and Programming
Robotics and programming are at the forefront of technology and computer science education. At STEAM Week, participants will delve into the world of pi-top Robotics and Programming. This journey will enhance students' understanding of technology, computer science, and art. Through coding and building robots, students will acquire valuable problem-solving skills and experience the thrill of bringing their creations to life.


MergeEDU Augmented Reality
Augmented reality (AR) is an immersive technology that's taking education to new heights. MergeEDU Augmented Reality activities at STEAM Week will transport students into augmented reality adventures, making subjects like geography and history come to life. It's an exciting way to engage students in their learning, allowing them to explore and interact with digital content in the real world.


3Doodler 3D Pens
The 3Doodler 3D pens are a fantastic tool to foster critical thinking and problem-solving skills. During STEAM Week, participants will have the chance to use 3Doodler pens to engage in art, design, and hands-on projects. Whether it's creating intricate sculptures, architectural models, or artistic masterpieces, these pens encourage creativity and innovation.

STEAM education is more than just learning science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics in isolation. It's about weaving these disciplines together to foster innovation, critical thinking, and collaboration.  Don't miss this incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of MakerBot 3D printing, pi-top Robotics, MergeEDU Augmented Reality, and 3Doodler 3D pens.
