instaSTEM turns
STEM into STEAM


The "a" is for ART!


"I have learned through many author appearances that children are inspired and motivated by exciting scientific imagery."



Students may use any kind of digital camera --cell phone cameras are great.


Students label their photographs and upload them to the class website.


Students learn the relationship between form and function as they study and research their images.

interactive videoconferencing + STEM + art = instaSTEM
