Product Description

STEM is all about cross curricular exploration and integration and in the DSTEM series we wanted to show students how all of these fabulous STEM concepts AND manipulatives connect together in strange and wonderful ways. Each of the DSTEM modules has been carefully selected for their rich ability to introduce topics PLUS their capacity to integrate with the other modules. You can use each module on its own, then show students how they can blend together. Connect Bricks to the Cubelets and then use the video module to film a hero saving the day! Just imagine the possibilities!
