How to Re-engage and Motivate Remote Learners in the New Year

As we enter 2021, we begin a new year and a new semester for remote learners. Many students throughout the United States are heading back to remote learning environments after their holiday break. That leads parents and educators to wonder how they can promote re-engagement and motivation for students at a time when remote learning burnout can be at an all-time high.

Invention Literacy and How it Applies to STEM Education

People design and construct the objects that we interact with daily. From computer code to electronics to brick and mortar, the next generation of builders, designers, leaders, and thinkers must understand how digital and physical objects in our world come to fruition. This way, they'll feel confident to design and build their own.
