The Siemens Foundation and Discovery Education, the leading provider of digital content and professional development for K-12 classrooms, launched Siemens STEM Day ― a refreshed and expanded version of the beloved Siemens Science Day website that includes a new K-12 online STEM experience.
In addition to more than 130 elementary and middle school activities, the Siemens STEM Day site now offers high school resources designed to support STEM curriculum and instruction with digital content. To celebrate the initiative’s launch, Siemens STEM Day is also hosting The Possibility Grant Sweepstakes, which offers schools the chance to win up to $10,000 to go toward STEM education.
Available at no cost, Siemens STEM Day materials emphasize the importance of STEM through standards-aligned, fun and engaging hands-on classroom activities and videos designed to support the development of students’ ability to investigate, question and understand how the world works within STEM principles.
Interactive student activities can be filtered by grade level, category or career path, and explore topics spanning healthcare, engineering, IT, science, math, technology, energy and manufacturing. Siemens STEM Day also offers a Teacher Support Center that provides educators 5-minute prep videos, live demonstrations of activities and downloadable one-sheets for best practice and how-to guides.
“Possibility Grant Sweepstakes,” awards one grand prize winning school $10,000, which could be used by school leaders to purchase STEM-related equipment, supplies or technology or to refurbish existing science labs. K-12 educators in the United States are eligible to enter their school once daily until April 28, 2017.
