Why is the SoS Coffee Break Series Effective?

Here’s What Educators are Saying:

The Spark of STEM Coffee Break Series is a fantastic addition to my teacher toolbox.  The flexible 15 minute format allows me to hear about new projects focusing on STEM innovation that are easily transitioned into lesson activities for my students.  The activity sheets and resources are amazing!

As a teacher, I have extremely small amounts of breaks in my day and after school, so the 15 minute workshops are the answer to helping me to stay current in my practices.

I love the STEM coffee break series. The lessons are presented in a way that can be easily adjusted to fit your needs and your classroom without losing any content or engagement. I hope they keep adding to the series!

Great ways for teachers to get fresh new ideas for classroom activities, so students can get more hands-on activities and new ways to help students understand subjects.

This series of information is something every teacher can use to create, imagine, and validate the skills for our 21st century STEM education.  This series will set the tone for the school year.

I absolutely love the 15 minute format as I can watch over my lunch break. The episodes are easily digestible and the tips are easy to integrate into the classroom. Thank you for hosting this for educators.

Excellent resource that both INSPIRES and provides TAKE-AWAY ideas to use in the STEM classroom!  Thank you!

It was convenient!  Watching it on demand allowed me to watch programming when I could during a lunch period.

Short videos are great for providing those little sparks of STEM.  New ideas help keep my content exciting and it is great to hear from experts on what works for them.

I found the coffee breaks convenient and helpful – I really like that they are available to watch on my time.
