Learning Blade is designed to provide engaging resources that will expose students to STEM related career opportunities and help them develop key skills as they move forward. This innovative approach to STEM education focuses on activities that can be utilized both in a self-paced game environment and as practice in academic classrooms.
Each activity combines three aspects:
- Academics – each activity exercises specific academic skills and is directly correlated to academic standards.
- STEM – each activity is presented in a real-life context which highlights how STEM skills are used in the real world.
- Career Exploration – each activity also links to real-life STEM careers and allows the student to explore both the characteristics and demand of various STEM related fields. Many times students will ask WHY they need to learn a skill or idea and this aspect of Learning Blade clearly answers that question.
Learning Blade aims to be an effective resource useful to the entire teaching staff, including language arts, mathematics, social studies and (Of Course!) science teachers.
