Teach like the future depends on it.
In the last 10 years, 3 million American jobs have gone unfilled due to a lack of basic STEM skills. Discovery Education STEM Connect is a cutting-edge interdisciplinary K-8 resource designed to enhance core curriculum and bring STEM to life in your classrooms. Our powerful 4Cs framework uses relatable scenarios that connect students to real world challenges. With each unit, students gain valuable critical-thinking and solution seeking skills for life.
Don’t limit challenges.
Inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the NAE Grand Challenges for Engineering, STEM Connect encourages students to develop and apply solutions to real challenges facing the world.
Relatable + Real
The challenges posed to students progress from Grades K to 8. Younger students are faced with more personal, local issues. Whereas middle school students are pushed to solve more complex, global challenges. Students are also asked to personalize solutions to fit community and local needs.
From math and literacy to art and health, STEM Connect Connection activities ask students to apply appropriate grade-level skills to various disciplines.
Teach them today. They’ll handle tomorrow.
Education is about preparing for what’s next. STEM Connect helps students realize their potential and how their interests can apply to a diverse range of STEM careers for the future.
