OK Go Sandbox
Creative music video-inspired STEAM design challenges
Pros: Fun music videos are a great hook; kids are motivated to create their own innovations using STEAM skills.
Cons: Lessons are organized on the site by music video, making it hard for teachers to match activities to their specific needs.
Bottom Line: After watching OK Go music videos, kids will be excited to make new creations by integrating art, science, and math.
