The iGame4 STEM Program
iGame4 STEM Program
The iGame4 STEM Program offers modules with comprehensive learning activities that focus on engaging students through innovative technologies. These modules support STEM curricula to create an interactive and exploratory environment for students to gain real-world experience learning coding and robotics, engineering and design, game-based learning, and modular computing.
Coding and Robotics
Coding is a necessary part of students' education as it prepares them with the skills they need in an ever changing digital world. This iGame4 module will empower students with the ability to create and solve problems by learning to code. Students will work cooperatively to apply what they have learned to program a variety of robotic devices.
3D Engineering and Design
The 3D space is an amazing frontier that we are just beginning to see the potential for in education. In this iGame4 module students will explore 3D technology and collaborate to learn the basics of 3D design. They will then work cooperatively and apply what they have learned and bring their creation to life with a 3D printer.

Game-based exploratory environments are extremely popular with students today. Many of the top simulation games offer an open world for students to create whatever their imagination can think up. In this iGame4 module students will be highly engaged, working cooperatively toward a task-based common goal in a teacher created and moderated gaming environment.
Computer technology has advanced exponentially in recent years. An entire computer can fit in the palm of your hand. In this iGame4 module students will explore computer science through modular computing technology. Student will plan, set goals and work together learning how to combine modular components and program their own microcomputer.
