STEM Curriculum – Applied CNC STEM Activities
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 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 align to national standards. It’s easy to incorporate Applied STEM Activities into your Career Tech Ed classroom!
