Hi All:

Hope all of you are doing well.

Some free resources we utilized as a 6-12 department to rollout our enrichment opportunities to our students this morning:

I am also willing to share a high school CAD lesson I put together based on this Italian Coronavirus news story.

I was looking at the 3D printing and design resources, and I love that it connects to TinkerCad. I currently teach 7th grade math, so I love using TinkerCad to tie in STEM when I am teaching scale and also my 3D geometry unit. Thanks for sharing all of the engineering challenges as well -  I really want to tie in engineering more often into my classroom.

Hello! I could not find the lesson plans. However, I did find the tweets of you furniture design examples. They were really intriguing. I am a Family and Consumer Science teacher that is getting her STEM endorsement. This would be a great way to incorporate more STEM in my FCS classroom. Thank you!

Hi Everyone,

Last week, as part of The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy’s COVID-19 technology initiative, American technology companies were called on to make online learning resources more accessible for teachers, parents, and students as more Americans are encouraged to stay home amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

Today, the technology industry rose to the occasion with the launch of TechforLearners.orga new resource for educators, administrators, and public officials who are turning to online learning as coronavirus response disrupts the school year. is a searchable online database of education technology tools that facilitate online classrooms and teaching, allowing educators to search for free and discounted tools and services by grade level, product type, and subject matter. The site, coordinated by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), will be continually updated and will soon include additional resources geared towards parents and students.

Thank you for sharing these resources. I am an urban STEM educator in Erie,PA and am very eager to work on some new topics in my class this year. I would love to introduce my students to the idea of urban heat zones. Would you be available to do teleconference with my class so that they can ask questions and learn from an expert? I look forward to checking out the ASLA's twitter feature as well.
