    STEAM/STEM Resources and Links
    NEA many links including some of the below.
    Exploratorium "The Exploratorium isn't just a museum; it's an ongoing exploration of science, art and human perception—a vast collection of online experiences that feed your curiosity."
    Designing Teaching Learning Tools
    Geometry Playground for example, has hands-on activities that spark students’ interest in geometry. Some of the activities are in Spanish as well as English and are designed for classroom use but can also be used by families or other groups.
    Faultline is another microsite suitable for teachers. It focuses on earthquakes, covers all the basics of seismic science, and includes hands-on activities.
    Educator Learning Commons: This library and information hub supports the educational, professional development, and research needs of Exploratorium Teacher Institute alumni by providing access to a variety of electronic, multimedia, and print-based learning resources and technology.
    Publications: Over decades, we’ve developed a rich body of work related to teaching and learning. There are publications for educators to use in the classroom including Human Body Explorations; reports and papers, such as //Art as a Way of Knowing//; many papers documenting the results of learning research and formative evaluation at exhibits, and more.
    Digital Library: The collections in our digital library include images, educational activities in PDF and HTML formats, QuickTime movies, streaming media, and audio files related to interactive exhibits and scientific phenomena. Educators can search, select, and download digital files for individual, noncommercial educational use.
    Color Uncovered iPad App: This interactive iPad book focuses on the surprising side of color through illusions, articles, videos, and activities—and can be used as a teaching tool in or out of the classroom. In keeping with our commitment to hands-on learning, some of the activities work with simple items such as a CD, a drop of water, or a piece of paper.
    Sound Uncovered iPad App: Hear with your eyes, see with your ears, test your hearing, make and modify recordings—this app puts you at the center of the experiment. Explore the surprising side of sound with Sound Uncovered, an interactive collection featuring auditory illusions, acoustic phenomena, and other things that go bump, beep, boom, and vroom.
    Snacks: “Snacks” are miniature versions of some of the most popular exhibits at the Exploratorium. Here, educators can explore a variety of them and learn how to build them for their classrooms using common, inexpensive, easily available materials.
    Science Teaching Tips Podcasts: We have nearly 70 science-teaching podcasts. They offer pedagogy tips, science history, hands-on activities, and other ideas for science classrooms.
    The Explore section of our website: In this section of our website there are hundreds of hands-on activities, online exhibits, articles, videos, and more to explore; many of them are appropriate to use in and out of the classroom.
