There are countless blogs to research to even look for a plan on how to create a STEAM event. So we decided to do the research for you and combine the best blogs, Pinterest boards and websites to point you in the right direction to set up your STEAM event along with a few helpful hints of our own. The following is what you need to get that STEAM night off of your wish-list and into the planning stages.
Turing Tumble has helped me conceptualize what is inside an electronic computer because it is a mechanical computer that allows us to feel, hear, and see how a computer works. It has helped me tremendously to visually interpret the path of switches connected together performing clever tasks. Turing Tumble not only engages learners with multiple modalities, it helps educators, who may be as confounded as I was, how to teach logic, coding and programming.
Welcome to Turing Tumble in the classroom! We are excited to help you and your students jump in to a new adventure that will teach everyone how to use a mechanical computer while solving satisfying challenges and even teach some important skills such as coding, logic and more! We will walk you through this process step by step and supply you with all of the resources needed to make this lesson run smoothly.
So how do we teach computing skills in a competitive culture of learning without an overexposure of screen-time while also nurturing a child’s sense of creativity, spontaneity, and collaboration?
Here is a list of educational tools (some which have educator resources for implementing into the classroom) that will allow students to develop some pretty amazing/computational skills broken down by age. ALL are STEM based and screen free:
