After taking the initial steps for implementation, there are key pieces which can help your school implement the C-STEM Program.
- C-STEM School Annual Subscription
- Professional Development
- Student Textbooks
- Robotics Equipment
- 3D Printing Technology
To help you identify which pieces you will need for individual courses, please see our Course Materials flyer.
Subscribing as a C-STEM school, you become a true partner in working with the entire C-STEM team and community on integrated computing and STEM education. The C-STEM Math-ICT curriculum provides K-12 students with up to 13 years of integrated math education with hands-on computing, robotics, and making. The rigorous C-STEM program integrates innovative technology and pedagogy to help close the math achievement gap and provide all students with the skills needed to succeed in college and industry. Subscription includes the following benefits for an unlimited number of teachers, students, courses, and sections in both the academic year and summer programs:
The cost of the C-STEM program is $1,000 per school site
The definition of a school site is a campus headed by a single principal with a unique school name.
Please visit our Getting Started Page for more detailed information on how to become a C-STEM School.
C-STEM Professional Development
C-STEM provides unique professional development for teachers without any prior computing and robotics experience to use C-STEM curriculum effectively.
To ensure course quality and fidelity of implementation, teacher completion of appropriate C-STEM Professional Development is required prior to implementing C-STEM courses.
Textbooks in full color are available to C-STEM schools for $20-55 each and can be purchased directly through the C-STEM Center. Robotics and programming textbooks in PDF files are freely available for downloading.
C-STEM Studio is a platform for hands-on integrated learning of computing, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (C-STEM) with robotics and physical computing. It is
SoftIntegration Ch Software
The C-STEM Center partners with SoftIntegration to offer educators access to the C/C++ Interpreter Ch which is used in most of our curriculum. Learning C/C++ makes students career and college ready.
Ch is a user-friendly C/C++ interpreter and scripting language environment used by teachers, students, engineers, and scientists around the world to learn math, numerical computing, C/C++, and write cross-platform code and embedded scripts quickly and efficiently. It is an alternative user-friendly solution to C/C++ compiler.
ChIDE runs on Windows, Mac and Linux
SoftIntegration offers a free Ch Student Edition as well as annual lab licenses for Ch Professional Edition, discounted for C-STEM schools, for either up to 15 or 35 computers per lab for $170 or $300 per year.
Barobo Linkbot Robotics Equipment
Our partner, Barobo, created a modular robot, the Linkbot, specially designed for integrating computing and robotics into STEM education. Linkbot is a fully functional robot with two degrees of freedom powered by an internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery, good for all day use. SnapConnectors allow modules to be snapped together without special tools to create a snake, tank, humanoid, and any system that can be imagined. Integrated standard thread holes allow for custom-made accessories. Many accessory CAD files are freely downloadable for 3D printing, laser cut, or CNC manufacturing. Please see the C-STEM Teacher Discussion Board to download the files. (note: you must be logged in to access the C-STEM Teacher Discussion Board)
3D Printing Technology
Our partner, Paton Group, has worked with us to bring cutting edge Stratasys 3D printing technology into the classroom, allowing students the opportunity to see their designs come to life. Used in conjunction with our Robotics curriculum and supplementary Computer Aided Design and 3D printing curriculum, students can extend robotics activities by designing parts that work with the Linkbots to solve real world engineering problems. Students can also use these skills to compete in the Best Custom Designed Part category of the RoboPlay Video Competition.
Paton Group currently offers C-STEM schools discounted prices on six of their models: MakerBot Replicator 2, MakerBot Replicator 2X, Mojo 3D Printer, UPrint SE Monochrom 3D Printer, UPrint SE Plus Color 3D Printer, and the Dimension 1200SE Color 3D Printer. Please contact us for more information.
