Students are connected all the time, from laptops to tablets, to iPhones and iPods, technology is everywhere! Explore the use of apps and mobile devices to enhance STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)!

But what is an “app”?! An app is a new, virtual media tool available for download onto Smartphones, Ipods, Ipads, and tablets. Apps come in all kinds of categories…including education!

Learn how to get your 6-12th graders excited about how to use their knowledge of mobile devices to study, write reports, or explore their favorite subjects! Once you've got the 411, bring the "apps" to your class! Have the students create their own app commercial to encourage their classmates to use technology for effective learning!
