The STEM TakeTech Challenge Kits are designed to introduce students to STEM and the 10 broad-based technology (BBT) areas in high school. A toolkit of materials has been designed for each BBT, which may be purchased through the listed suppliers or can be purchased locally (i.e. at the Dollar Store).
A number of teaching resources have been developed to help teachers deliver this content that is linked to the Grade 7 and 8 curriculum, including curriculum connections for each toolkit by subject area, a Teacher Guide presentation, pre-, during and post-activities and 15-20 curriclum-linked challenge cards for each STEM Toolkit.
