What is a MakerPlace STEAM Cart?

Each MakerPlace STEAM Cart consists of ten 1-hour hands-on activity lesson plans, seven 30-minute hands-on activity lesson plans, and multiple technology enhancements for use during each lesson. Activities are geared towards grades 1-5 and designed for up to 25 students to participate in individual or group sessions. STEAM Carts are placed in schools for a six month residency, and selected schools can use the cart to supplement active classroom lessons, enable after school enrichment opportunities, or promote family engagement.

Examples of STEAM Cart activities include:

    • Chromatography
    • Balloon Cars
    • Hovercraft
    • Paper Circuits
    • 3D Pens 101
    • Ozobots 101
    • Dog Prosthetics
