Educator & Family Guides

Teacher Guide

Kids really get into Archimedes’ Principle and Newton’s Laws of Motion. It’s true! When students learn in terms of the sports they enjoy, they get a deeper and longer-lasting grasp of STEM concepts.

Teachers in grades 4-8 can use this free guide to bring STEM ideas to life through engaging sports-related lessons, aligned with Common Core standards.

TechBridge Family Guides

Parents play an important role in their child’s love of learning. From day trips to talks around the dinner table, there are lots of easy and fun ways to spark a love of science. Your next conversation or outing could inspire the future engineer inside your child.

The guide provides advice for encouraging your children in science, and ideas for science museum visits, hands-on activities, and other things you can do as a family. This resource is made possible with support from Chevron.
