· Maker Club (during and afterschool)

What other Schools are saying about our Scratch Arduino Robotics and Coding System:
Good morning all,  STEM in a Box is running a Professional Development...This will be a valuable experience for anyone who is running STEM style classes or implementing the Digital Technologies curriculum… The Arduino based platform used is very simple to pickup and use and accessible to students  from early primary to senior. As it is all open source you use SCRATCH for beginners and Arduino IDE for more advanced students...We currently use this platform in our STEM classes and it has shown to be very successful thus far. 
Kindly Yours, Tim Mitchell, STEM Coordinator, Windaroo Valley State High School, txmit1@eq.edu.au

What a great event at the University of Queensland - Madi and I along with Marie Boden (UQ), Jim Cook (Sydney Uni) and a bunch of excellent tutors provided some awesome hands on STEM & robotics projects. Thanks go to IMSITE and the UQ School of Education for organising this event. Thanks also to all the teachers who attended for your efforts to invigorate and enrich your student's learning with some future hands on STEM projects.

Across the course of two days (19-20/02/15), 50 attendees gained practical hands on STEM experience of how to implement the following projects in their classroom or MakerSpace environments:
·  3D Printing and 3D Design
· Electronic Jewellery - Crafty Circuits
· LEGO NXT/EV3 Robots - Line Follow/Rescue + Sumo
· Chunx 3DprintBOT Interfacing Robots with Smart Devices
