STEM & STEAM Resources: Technology Kits

Technology Kits

The following technology resources are available for use by College of Education students and practicing teachers. Please go to the IMC Contact Info page for more information on the availability of the kits.

Makey Makey (Grades 3+)

Use Makey Makey to:

  • teach programming plus kinesthetic learning
  • teach conductivity, electronics and programming basics
  • invent new devices, instruments, and controllers, or remix familiar objects (bananas can become pianos!)
  • provide students the opportunity to be engineers without needing to be experts in electrical engineering
  • participate in a creative design process to reimagine how one might interact with computers

Kano Computer & Coding Kit

Osmo (K-8)

Rasberry Pi (Grades 5+)

It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.

3d Printing

We have two different 3D printers available at the Tech Desk: Lulzbot and Stratasys uPrint SE Plus.

Visit our Makerspace for more information on using our 3D printers.

Leap Motion

Many Leap applications:

  • provide an intuitive and immersive opportunity to explore in all three dimensions
  • provide a hands-on experience using virtual objects
  • explore chemistry, dissection, anatomy, and space models

Dash and Dot Robots (K+)

Arduino (Grades 5+)

Arduinos can be used to develop interactive objects, take inputs from a variety of switches or sensors, and control a variety of lights, motors, and other physical outputs. Arduino projects can be stand-alone, or they can communicate with software running on your computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP.)
