ROK Blocks Mobile STEM Lab

Young students have surprisingly sophisticated ways of seeing the world. PK-3 is one of the most critical times in student development and is when they are most able to absorb information and create lifelong patterns. This ROK Blocks Lab teaches skills and confidence fundamental to STEM learning. The ROK Blocks Lab allows teachers to meet young students wherever they are in their STEM journey. 

How to Order a Class Set:

Each ROK Blocks Mobile STEM Lab serves 4 students. Stack up to 4 labs per rolling base. 

 

Progression of Learning:

Each Mobile STEM Labs teaches part of the Rokenbok progression of learning that spans from K-8 and is organized into 4 progressive phases of learning: Mentored Construction Play, STEM Fundamentals, Applications in Design & Engineering and Systems of Technology. This lab focuses on the beginning of this learning progression and covers Mentored Construction Play and STEM Fundamentals.

Rokenbok STEM Education Program - STEM Curriculum

 

ROK Blocks Teaches:

robotics

Mentored Construction Play

Young students need foundational STEM fluencies for ongoing STEM learning. 

  • Sequence & correspondence
  • Symbolization
  • Spatial reasoning
  • Symmetry
  • Logical reasoning

STEM Fundamentals

Students gain confidence in their ability to learn technical skills and create solutions of their own design.

Explorations focus on intuitive concepts:

  • How to make things strong
  • How to make things move
  • Working in teams
  • The design process

 

What Are ROK Blocks? 

ROK Blocks are fun and capable 3D building blocks that accelerate the benefits of mentored block play. These carefully engineered blocks connect on all sides expanding opportunities for creative building. ROK Blocks curriculum is designed to level the playing field for students who may have had less experience than peers with parent supported building block play.  

 

Build Critical Fluencies

Foundational fluencies learned with ROK Blocks include how to follow step-by-step graphical (pictorial) instructions, goal achievement, and persistence.  The ROK Blocks Lab also contains more advanced engineering elements to support students as they progress.  Students will design and build experiences that teach how to make things strong, how to make things move, measurement, organization, and other fluencies key to progressive STEM learning. It is impossible to overstate the need for, and developmental benefits of mentored block play.

I provide math enrichment for a K - 5 elementary school. I was looking for materials to support the engineering component of my curriculum and found the Rokenbok site. I purchased 2 of these STEM Labs to give them a try and have been very pleased. I love the curriculum, especially the way it builds up the necessary skills and then provides the opportunity for students that are ready to stretch beyond it. The only problem I have had is that a few times, the correct number of blocks needed to complete a building project were not provided. A call to Rokenbok resolved this issue quickly. The necessary blocks were mailed out at no cost. I have been assured that the Rokenbok is revamping their curriculum so that the number of each kind of block provided will match the curriculum in the future. The support provided by Rokenbok has been exceptional.

Rokenbok has been great for our homeschool. It's the only engineering/building system I've been able to find that offers an actual curriculum that we can use. Other systems are nice, but it's incredibly hard to find projects to do that help you get the most out of them.

Our kids have loved learning the basics of engineering and simple machines with this set.

I am a math specialist and STEAM teacher and was in the market for materials to enhance my lessons. The students I work with have enjoyed using the Rokenbok mobile Stem labs. After presenting the class with a challenge, the children plan, design, and construct using the materials in the labs. I have also downloaded the curriculum and the students have a great time following along with the pictures and constructing the different items. Thank you Rokenbok for this great product that allows children to expand their engineering skills!! I am happy to say that the customer service is attentive and quick to respond to questions.

I am looking forward to the students using your materials. In fact, Rokenbok will be our launch unit for third grade this year (upcoming school year). Really appreciate the well-written teacher resources on your site.
