Imagineerz@School

An fun elementary school program

where

STEM meets Mindset

Our Goal

is to help all children develop a Growth Mindset through design/maker challenges in elementary school

Our Methodology

1) We provide children with a Makerspace and STEM challenges

2) We teach children the Stanford Design Thinking process to develop creative solutions

3) We help children use Growth Mindset tools to persevere through obstacles.

How does it work?

Our program uses a Blended Curriculum. For each lesson, we provide teachers two instructional videos:

  • Teachers use the videos we provide to open and close the lesson. these videos are plug and play  and introduce the lesson and challenges to students – leaving no prep needed for teachers.
  • Once students start building, the teacher facilitates the building maintaining the hands-on, engaging element of the program!

Class would look a little like this…

  • Show Video #1 (10 min) – This video introduces new concepts, and presents the building challenge to students.
  • Makerspace Building (1 hr) – Teacher ensures students are building and working on their building challenge. Provides encouragement and an i-Can! attitude.
  • Show Video #2 (10 min)- This video helps students to reflect on the concepts learned and includes a guided activity to close the lesson.
