Root & STEM is a free print and online STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) resource to support K–12 educators in teaching digital skills. Each issue features articles, activities, and lesson plans with a specific focus on STEAM education through creativity. Root & STEM provides a holistic approach to education, merging heart and head while pushing the boundaries for how Canada thinks about science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. Our goal is to provide a platform for more diverse STEAM stories and resources to be shared, with the hope that educators will see the unique needs of their communities and classrooms reflected.
Root & STEM: Issue 1
In the debut issue of Root & STEM, we look at how technology and tradition are being combined in the fight against climate change. Learn about hunters collaborating with data scientists, teens in Tuktoyaktyuk telling their own story on film, and more—including over 10 pages of free learning resources.
Root & STEM: Issue 2
The second issue of Root & STEM introduces us to innovators whose projects are challenging established ideas about the role technology plays in keeping us healthy. Our communities are filled with those who inspire us to use technology in new and meaningful ways.
Pinnguaq values diverse approaches to STEAM education. If you have a story to pitch around innovative examples of STEAM in your community, or would like to be considered to develop a lesson plan, we would love to hear from you. Please send your ideas to email@example.com.
