“We know many parents were quickly turned into at-home teachers in the last few weeks,” said Gretchen Walker, vice president of learning at The Tech, “and educators may be struggling to conduct remote learning in an engaging and impactful way. This is our specialty, and we hope we can provide a useful service during these uncertain times.”
The new resources include:
- A virtual field trip to The Tech Interactive, including a look inside the places innovation happens in Silicon Valley.
- Simple STEM activities like making your own inflatable creation or designing a device to make remote deliveries.
- In-depth challenges for teens involving real-world problems and tech solutions that will have them designing and iterating like engineers and social entrepreneurs.
- IMAX educational films and activities.
