Project-Based Learning meets STEAM, at your school

STEM + Arts (STEAM) is nothing less than the new literacy. Students will need a broad base of technological competencies in order to be ready for many college and career paths. But, consider the headwinds:

  • Only 16% of American high school seniors are proficient in math and interested in a STEM career.
  • Only half of college students majoring in a STEM field end up working in one.
  • The US ranks 29th in math and 22nd in science among industrialized nations.
  • Only 29 percent of Americans rated the US K-12 education in STEM subjects as above average in the world.

How is this acceptable in our competitive global economy? 

Project-Based Learning (PBL) is the perfect way to infuse Technology and Engineering learning into your Math, Science, Art, Social Studies, and ELA curriculum, and make it all more real, meaningful, and engaging. Talent Box empowers K-12 teachers with little to no technical experience to bring projects into their classroom.

How-To Instruction

Science & Technology Icon

We teach students starting in grade 1 how to code, create animations, design 3D models, produce digital music, and tell stories using interactive games.  We also provide teaching resources and lesson plans to help you tie these projects into your curriculum.

Achievement Badges

Project-based learning is hard fun. It takes persistence, gumption, and willingness to fail. We encourage and support students through frequent opportunities to succeed, with carefully leveled achievement badges that are satisfying and fun.

Portfolio

Student Portfolios

Students build up a portfolio of projects that encourage them to reflect on their learning as their skills evolve, and develop a growth mindset. Student can access their projects from home for continued learning, encouraging family engagement.

Customer Spotlight

British International School of Boston

As a teacher who knew little about LEGO Robotics prior to using Empow’s Talent Box, I was able to facilitate a 6 week skills lesson for 11-14 year old students. The interface is easy to navigate and the instructions are clear and concise and presented in a variety of formats. The step by step approach means that students are able to learn how to build and code in a self-directed way. Our students have found the content of Talent Box invaluable in their honing of the skills they will require for future life.
