We are excited to bring you the latest in the eSchool News Guides series. eSchool News Guides are full of resources, tips, trends, and insights from industry experts on a variety of topics that are essential to the classroom, school, and district.

The February Guide, the eSchool News STEM, STEAM, & Makerspaces Guide, offers insight on the best approaches to STEM, STEAM, and makerspaces. The guide also highlights some resources and tools educators can use in the classroom to engage students, improve classroom climate, and create interactive classroom environments.

In the guide, we take a look at how educators are implementing STEAM projects for very young learners. Plus, we examine one school’s successful transition from STEM to STEAM learning, and we learn some of the most-needed components for a successful makerspace.

Have you dreamed of starting a makerspace in your school, but you’re not quite sure where to start or what you might need in the space? Maybe you’re hoping to learn the best way to introduce STEM across all disciplines, or perhaps you want to learn how to engage key groups of students, including underrepresented groups like girls and minorities, in STEM and STEAM learning. Or maybe you just want to know some facts about STEM education and where it’s going. In the eSchool News STEM, STEAM, & Makerspaces Guide, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular tools for classrooms.

We highlight examples of how real educators are using STEAM learning and makerspaces to personalize education and engage students with relevant learning challenges and topics.

You also can find a complete list of STEM, STEAM, and makerspace partners and companies in the guide.
