I’ve compiled a list of enjoyable, simple-to-use technology that can integrate into any classroom setting. If you are looking to add technology and integrate STEM into the art classroom, this list is for you! Each technology comes with its own advantages, and I’ll provide a short insight into their implementation. Additionally, I’ve included a section on the simplest STEM component to introduce in the classroom: circuits. The technology on this list requires no additional devices! These items are a wonderful starting place if you are looking to integrate STEM into your art classroom. If you know of any other devices that should be considered for this list, please feel free to share!
Disclaimer: I have no affiliation or relationships with the suppliers of these products. These are my favorite and simple tools to integrate STEM and technology.
I absolutely adore using circuits in the art classroom due to their accessibility and versatility."
I absolutely adore using circuits in the art classroom due to their accessibility and versatility. Consider starting students off with using Circuit Maze and Squishy Circuits. These two tools help them build the basic skills in understanding of how circuits work. After students build some confidence, I introduce more challenge elements using Snap Circuits and Circuit Kits. The inclusion of circuits kits with sculpture opens a world of possibilities, allowing students to experiment with adding motors, fans, and lights to their artistic creation.
