Do you ever feel like..
You want your kids to learn STEM, but resources are beyond your budget?
You know STEM is important, but you can't find time to plan out elaborate projects?
Your kids are interested in STEM, but your confidence in the STEM arena is lacking?
You are on an endless search for STEM programs that are not just glorified science experiments?
You can only find STEM subscription kits that give you an instruction manual to solve the problem?
If the answer is YES, we are here to help!
How It Works
Join the Growin'GEERS Community!
Sign up to have a Growin'GEERS Supply Sack delivered right to your doorstep with all the materials you need to complete 3 engineering quests! Each Supply Sack includes research and brainstorming worksheets for your GEERling to dive into and all the household materials you need to build a solution for Flynn! In addition to the kit, your online membership gives you access to all of Flynn's videos associated with each quest and a slew of Facilitator Resources to give you some background information on each elementary STEM unit.
Get Acquainted with Growin'GEERS!
Receive your Supply Sack filled with all the materials you need to complete 3 Growin'GEERS quests, and check out the online materials via your login! You will receive some additional information from us via email on how to best utilize your membership and get the most out of our materials. Lastly, watch our Introduction Video with your GEERling to get to know Flynn, and get ready to dive in in some fun STEM lesson plans!
Now that you have your kit, it is time to start your first quest! To start each quest, Flynn will introduce a problem that she has encountered and your elementary engineer will be challenged to solve the problem creatively using their own engineering intuition! Learn about Flynn's challenge, brainstorm and plan a solution, and build your first prototype based on your own problem solving skills!
Learn an engineering concept!
In the second segment of each quest, Flynn will introduce an engineering concept based on her engineering intuition that could act as a potential solution to the problem. Your child will learn about this concept via Flynn and research links that we provide to understand how they could solve the problem.
Rebuild and Refine!
To wrap up each quest, your child will build an engineering concept for review with Flynn's guidance. Take the information you learned in the second segment and redesign your initial design. Test it to see if your GEERling was successful, and continue to tweak your design until you pass the Test for Success!
PLANS & PRICING
Get An Engineering Supply Sack
Get started now with one Engineering Supply Sack (includes materials for 3 quests) or for the yearly membership to receive one Supply Sack every 3 months for a year!
Materials for Hands-on Activity Adventure Journal Worksheets Animated Videos and Online Resources Extra Engineering Goodies
Each supply sack will include the materials needed to complete each quest. These materials help to promote creativity and questioning within each quest. We want our GEERlings to utilize materials differently.
Worksheets will arrive with each supply sack that will walk your student through the engineering design process. We will ask them to plan their design, build their first attempt, research some engineering concepts, and then rebuild their initial design.
You will also have access to all of the documents and videos that are available on the Growin'GEERS website to walk them through the activity. Each quest contains 6 animated videos of Flynn walking your student through her quest!
Each engineering Supply Sack will include additional materials to enhance your student's engineering experience! These materials will include a Growin'GEERS Supply Sack, Quest Completion pins, engineering tools, and more!
