The ROK Blocks Lab supports the Kid Spark Elementary Program (PK-5) and is perfect for children without any previous STEM experience. The carefully curated materials in the lab are organized and un-intimidating; the larger scale elements allow for collaborative learning. As your students progress through the lessons, they engage in key engineering practices that include gathering information, explaining how things work, problem-solving, and critical thinking.
With this lab, even the most inexperienced students can quickly and easily build sophisticated prototypes and grow their confidence in engineering. Early lessons focus on foundational fluencies that include reading step-by-step instructions, symbolization, measuring, patterns, and symmetry. Then students transition into more challenging concepts like how to make things move, how to make things strong, applied mathematics, the design and engineering cycle, and other foundational fluencies key to building their STEM identity. This identity—seeing one’s self as capable of learning and understanding science, technology, engineering, and math—is the cornerstone to instilling a love of science and technology in your students.
Resources for this lab include access to the Kid Spark curriculum library, online teacher lessons plans, student curriculum packets and workbooks, instructional videos, and teacher tutorials.
