Join us and let your creativity flow. We have lots of activities and would love to see your work. Send us a pic of what you make.
We have interdisciplinary lesson plans, teacher’s guides, and activities for educators. Need lesson plans and content aligned to the NGSS and CCSS? We have it!

An All-in-One Learning Stop!
Join us in creating projects and working together. Let’s inspire one another by sharing our work and sparking great conversation.
We are happy to visit schools, libraries, and other organizations to provide interdisciplinary programming. Please contact us if you are interested.
We can provide professional development to educators and librarians on STEAM-based interdisciplinary learning and technology integration.
We have a wealth of experts at NIU but are always looking for additional people who want to collaborate in game and video creation on hot SMART or STEM topics.
We strive to offer the highest quality interdisciplinary learning experiences that integrate science, math, art, reading, and technology (SMART).
Would you like to sponsor our materials or a game on a specific STEM or SMART topic? We can include your branding and give you credit. We’d love to talk to you.
