There is a growing need for workers in STEM-related jobs in the workforce such as computing and traditional engineering. This has created a larger push for these skills in the classroom. Not only does STEM prepare students for these career paths, but it also gives students the skills necessary to be successful in today’s world regardless of job choice. With a focus on collaboration, communication, research, problem-solving, critical thinking and creativity, STEM develops higher-level thinking skills for all students involved.
Technology is an integral part of any STEM lesson. It can help students with their planning and design, or it can become a tool for facilitating the lesson. Either way, the Promethean solution – both hardware and software – allows for a seamless integration of technology for your STEM instruction.
In our previous post, we discussed new ways that you can use STEM technology in the classroom. We’ve bundled the ActivPanel with some of the most engaging STEM products and apps out there to provide you with a guide on how to use these products in your classrooms today.
Here is a preview of our top STEM app recommendations. Download the full guide to learn about our 40+ STEM app recommendations and more.
1. Brain It On!
This app provides deceptively challenging physics puzzles for your brain! Draw shapes to solve challenging physics puzzles. They’re not as easy as they look.
2. Solar Walk
Solar Walk provides an impressive wealth of information about our solar system, planets, and stars presented as an amazing 3D model that can be rotated and zoomed easily.
3. Code Carbon
Take control of your own planet! Balance energy with emissions in the face of a growing population and worsening climate change in this simulation strategy game.
You can use all these great apps with your Promethean ActivPanel and ActivConnect device or with other mobile devices you’re using in the classroom. Hope you and your students enjoy our top recommended STEM apps!
