SnapStack Mobile STEM Lab

With the SnapStack Lab, students gain a deep comprehension of challenging STEM concepts that they see at work in the world around them. Design & Engineering lessons not only build content knowledge about mechanical engineering and introductory robotics, but also encourages students to practice perseverance, collaborative problem solving, and critical thinking.

How to Order a Class Set:

Each SnapStack Mobile STEM Lab serves 4 students. Stack up to 8 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. The SnapStack Mobile STEM Lab is used to teach a portion of lessons in the Applications in Design & Engineering learning phase. If paired with a Basic Robotics Mobile STEM Lab, even more content can be addressed.

What a year it has been. All in all 684 students came through my classes (grades 6-8) and worked with the Rokenbok basic kits and SnapStack labs. Both were needed in combination. It was the perfect choice considering that I taught the entire student spectrum from highly gifted to autistic and Down syndrome. Everyone was able to build at least something and use the remote controlled vehicles. It was perfect for differentiated instruction. Organizing team work and clean-up was an easy feat with this system, even in classes of 36 and 37 students.

The cases have gotten a lot of use as well. Our 6th grade is housed in a different building; so I had to travel between buildings forth and back. The plan was to have sufficient kits to equip both rooms, but with unexpectedly large classes due to a couple of unfilled teaching positions that plan fell through. Stacking and packing the kits into and out of my car was fairly easy to do, but doing so twice almost every day is beginning to show. They don't clip as tightly as they used to and three clips broke off. All 18 boxes and the coasters plus the bag with the build plans (I used colored copies of the Rokenbok classroom materials and sheet protectors) are in there. I had 12 minutes to get from one class to the other in the morning.
This year I have introduced 6th, 7th and 8th grade to the basics of robotics, mechanisms and types of motion. I am hoping that we will be able to purchase the advanced kits for the rising 7th and 8th graders. The students had fun and created some interesting robots for their final projects.

I provide math enrichment in a K - 5 elementary school. I bought 2 of the Snap Stack Mobile STEM Labs to support the engineering component of my curriculum. I have been very happy with both the materials and the curriculum. My students have loved using these and I love that the curriculum provides the opportunity to stretch beyond it., increasing the difficulty of the challenge for those who are ready to do so.

I am a technology education teacher at the Upper Darby School District in Pennsylvania. I purchased eight Snap-Stacks modules last year. I have used them with great success in my classroom. Using the Rokenbok curriculum I have taught the six basic simple machines (inclined plane, lever, pulley, screw, wedge, and wheel & axle). I have also used other Rokenbok curriculum lessons (reactor challenge and taking flight) to employ the use of my 3-D printer as the curriculum describes. Rokenbok's mission is to help children (especially girls, children from low-income families, and minorities) prepare for a lifetime of learning about science and technology. My particular school(Beverly Hills Middle School) is 94% students of color and 81% low income, so my personal mission as a technology teacher, mirrors the mission of Rokenbok. This school year, in addition to my regular technology classes, I will also be teaching an engineering class and I look forward to using my Snap Stack labs to help my students gain a comprehension of STEM concepts while practicing collaboration in the workplace.

I teach science in a classroom tutorial that serves homeschool students from ages 5 through high school. The Snap Stack and related curriculum was used as the primary component for a semester in junior high and senior high science classes (a total of 32 students). I also used the kits as a resource for the upper elementary. The high school students were able to integrate the design challenges and more advanced levels (such as utilizing a 3D printer). The junior high level did the basic builds for simple machines. All students, even ones that don't gravitate towards building type activities, enjoyed the group work and hands-on experiences that the Snap Stack and related curriculum provides. I only knocked off a start because of the difficulty in dissembling the creations (even with the tool, it was very difficult for the younger kids), and that it seemed that each week we used the kits another component would break. With 8 modules being used over the course of 6 months, there were about 25 broken pieces. I don't feel this is excessive, but I was disappointed that some of the pieces broke so early in the year. I am buying replacement pieces and will continue to use these kits in the future school sessions.
