Try Before You Buy
The 28 local REMCs located across Michigan have many maker resources available for educators to try prior to purchasing. Local REMCs have extensive collections of maker kits including Bloxels, Dot and Dash, Eris 3D Printer, Hue Camera and Green Screen, Keva Planks, Little Bits, Makey Makey, Ozobots, Strawbees, and Sphero.
NEW THIS FALL: The books used by the Promoting STEM Through Literature website were added to the maker kits. Each of these titles shares a story where something was built or invented by designing, planning, gathering materials, and creating. In addition to strengthening literacy skills, your students will develop inquiry and problem-solving skills. Each title has additional resources and lessons for using it in the classroom.
Your REMC director can assist you with professional learning related to the maker kits. Contact your local REMC center to learn how to check out these maker items to try in your classroom and/or building.
