Classroom science and technology experiments can be expensive. Yet there are many ways to teach STEM for less than 30 cents per student through DollarStoreSTEM. As an engineer-turned-educator, Alicia Lane created an online resource with 20+ lesson plans that make it easy and affordable to teach fundamental concepts in science, technology, engineering, and math — using everyday objects. DollarStoreSTEM.com is a TED-Ed Innovation Project and featured on the TED-Ed blog.
Alicia Lane created Dollar Store STEM Gems: a resource for easy-to-plan and engaging STEM lessons that are…
- Affordable (free or less than 30 cents per student!)
- Accessible (kid-tested and executed in actual classrooms)
- Aligned to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS Science and Engineering Practices)
accompanied with TED-Ed videos to help implementation
