Since the Apollo 11 Moon landing 50 years ago, generations of school children have seen how the real-world application of science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) can lead to awe-inspiring achievements. Boxlight Corporation (BOXL), the Aldrin Family Foundation (AFF) and ShareSpace Education (SSE) today announced that they are partnering to provide K-12 schools with new educational tools for STEAM learning.
As part of this partnership, Boxlight will integrate SSE’s Giant Moon Map™ and Giant Mars Map™ programs into the Mimio MyBot educational robotics system. Boxlight and SSE will join forces during the 2019-20 school year to offer the solution to K-12 districts and schools across the United States, with a focus on reaching under-served urban communities.
The Mimio MyBot system helps students develop core skills in programming, engineering and robotics. It includes the Wi-Fi enabled Fusion™ robotic controller, an interface, educational content, and building components. In addition, the system will include SSE’s Giant Mars Map and Giant Moon Map. The interactive space map programs feature lessons and activities to help children develop an understanding of real-world, STEAM-based concepts while promoting communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking skills.
