MIT FullSTEAM mission is to create and share high quality resources to facilitate digital and non-digital learning for K-12 and lifelong learners. By providing science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) based instructional materials and an open forum for users to share insights, we aim to inspire a diverse global community of educators, students, and parents to find innovative solutions to the challenges of learning at a distance.

Here’s a fun idea for remote learning. Is your child great at explaining concepts?  Students could create a video for a chance to win PRIZES.

We have two challenges out there
(1) COVID-19 handwashing video challenge - fun for all ages event little ones, and
(2) Kids Explaining COVID-19 - students are encouraged to help educate the world about his global health crisis by sharing in their own words (prose or poetry or code) and submit a video
