RIU#6 is excited to offer teachers access to the RIU#6 Innovation Playground and STEAM Lending Library. The Innovation Playground is equipped with tools to support STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) learning in the classroom. Current technologies include Puzzlets, Makey Makey, Breakout EDU boxes, Little Bits, Osmos, Ozobots, Design Thinking Challenges, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality. Look for upcoming STEAM and Education Technology training sessions posted on the Professional Development page.
The Innovation Playground is available for teachers to browse and tinker with at the Intermediate Unit or a customized demonstration or training can be provided in district.
Items can be lent out to teachers for classroom use.
RIU6 will continue to explore educational STEAM technologies and increase the resources available in the playground. Suggestions for items to be included? Let us know!
