AAUW Cybersecurity

When it comes to the STEM subjects — science, technology, engineering and math – research shows one of the best ways to engage students is with hands-on learning. This type of learning encourages interaction and exploration, which help students build skills and gain knowledge. AAUW has created a series of STEMpacks, lesson guides and materials that educators can use to encourage hands-on learning. It’s a fun and easy way to get middle- and high-school girls fully engaged in the STEM fields.

BrainPop

Our Creative Coding feature, in partnership with Vidcode, takes a project-based approach to the teaching of coding.

It gives students a way to show what they know about a given topic – regardless of curriculum area – by coding their own projects using BrainPOP assets. We introduced the feature with four project types – Meme, Stop Motion Animation, Doodle Augmented Reality, and Newscast – with more to follow. Creative Coding was designed so that students and teachers of all subjects, even with little or no coding experience, can jump right into a scaffolded project.
