Create Your Own walkSTEM® — Schools (Teachers & Other Personnel)

Give your students the opportunity to create a walkSTEM® experience and take them “outside the textbook” with a hands-on, inquiry-based project! You can also engage your students in Advanced Placement and other courses in a Service Learning project where they create a walkSTEM tour following our guidelines based on a public space or a campus that younger children visit. For example, high school students could create walkSTEM tours for children at playgrounds. Once they have submitted their walkSTEM videos to us and we upload on our platform, they can share these with teachers and volunteers who can use them to engage younger children.

Use materials you already have in your classroom and the school campus as your setting. walkSTEM® experiences can also help reinforce classroom content by allowing students to experience it authentically, in their real-world environment. Help your students discover how STEM is relevant to their everyday lives! Read on to learn how to get started.

Interested in making video-based walkSTEM tours of your spaces and ready to submit your tours to us for consideration for publishing on our freely accessible YouTube channel? Complete this form. Interested in making app-based walkSTEM tours, without any videos required? Check out information on a recent example here. Note: this option involves a small fee to cover the app maintenance.
