STEAM Community Workshops

A Community for All Educators

Hottest Place for Teachers Right Now

Join the best teacher community around. Every week teachers just like you come together to share strategies, ideas, project plans and problem solve together. We connect with other, have authentic conversation and support each other through these difficult changes. Each week is a reminder you are not alone and you can do this! You found the WhyMaker family, we are here for each other.

Here is what we know about learning these days: Kids are empowered, engaged when they actively involved in doing. Doing hands-on projects with students IS the best way to engage them in their learning. And doing hands-on projects are possible NOW!

All teachers will receive CTLE credits for completing a workshop with WhyMaker.

If you look around you, there are circuit boards in so many products these days from your nightlight, to your TV remote, to your car, to your computer. But how are these circuit boards made and how are our children learning about them? Patchr is an awesome platform that easily teaches students how to plan a functioning circuit board. It is not just a digital platform, Patchr also mails students their circuit boards they created so they can build their own functioning integrated circuit. This webinar is for educators to learn about why Patchr is the perfect tool for your technology, maker, engineering, STEM class.
