Instructional Slides: Content-rich slides are used to help structure lessons with background information and lead classroom discussion. Detailed notes are included for educators as they guide students through each lesson.

Student Assessments: Formal and informal assessments offer a combination of multiple choice, written response, and true/false questions. Students may be assessed on content-specific understanding and/or their ability to create, understand, or troubleshoot programming. Digital portfolios are also included as a place for students to document and reflect on their experience.

Activity Guides: Every project arrives with ready-to-teach activity guides to supplement lessons—including learning objectives, materials needed, setup procedure, detailed instructions on how to administer and discuss the activity, and troubleshooting tips to aid instructors.

    What Our Partners Are Saying​

    "TinkRworks enhances our core curriculum with projects that relate to what we have to cover. It connects the dots. And today’s learner needs hands-on engagement. The evidence shows that Project-based Learning makes a real difference in academic performance."

    RYAN EVANS | Principal at Brookfield-LaGrange Park D95

    "TinkRworks is a key part of our science curriculum because it’s so modular and ties in with our academic goals and the science and computer science standards."

    JON BARICOVICH | Director of Assessment at Cook County/Summit District 104

    "I’ve spent so many years working with different programs, but nothing has made as much sense to our students or meant so much to me. Plus, students learn about the nut and bolts of building something and get to connect the hardware to the software."

    FRED REYNOLDS | Middle School STEM Teacher at St. John of the Cross Western Springs
