Guide for Educators

STEM OPS videos are designed to expose STEM topics to viewers of all ages and are created to be easily adapted for a classroom setting. Pedagogical materials such as lists of keywords, vocabulary definitions, and discussion questions are also created to aide instructors in incorporating cutting edge STEM topics into their science curriculums. These materials, paired with their corresponding STEMBOPS videos, offer educators the perfect medium to make real-world science both fun and engaging for their students.
