STEM KIDS ONLINE WORKSHOPS

STEM KIDS Online Workshops

Presented by Craft Lake City & Google Fiber


Craft Lake City and Google Fiber are pleased to present a six-part STEM Kids Online Workshop video series, produced to support Utah elementary schools in their remote learning efforts. We have used the state curriculum guidelines for grades 3-5 to guide our selection of topics for these online workshops, focused on activities which can be done at home. Craft Lake City will be releasing a new video each week. 

Additional support was provided from the Utah STEM Action Center in partnership with Utah Division of Arts and Museums, The George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation, Salt Lake City Arts Council and Salt Lake County ZAP.

Thank you to Melissa Allen and Brooke Funk for their assistance making these videos. Melissa Allen is President of Make Salt Lake, a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance Utah’s creative and tech communities by providing affordable access to tools, learning experiences, and connect like-minded individuals. Brooke Funk is a Science Teacher at Granger High School, where she teaches Biology and AP Biology.
