BrainCo STEM Kit

Excite STEM learning in classes throughout your school with engaging exercises developed by an award-winning high tech team

The Brainco STEM Kit engages educators and learners to explore STEM fields with an easy to implement, easy to scale kit modeled after real award-winning technology. Through provided curriculum, hardware and programming tools, educators can excite students in Computer Science, STEM, Career Technical Education, Biomedical Engineering, Biotech and after school programs. Whether you are looking for a full class solution or an addition to your current tools, the STEM hand can add excitement and skill-building activities from one day to full semester time frames.

Scale STEM Easily

The STEM kit's simple build systems provides teachers with an easy to adopt platform. Instructional materials provide teachers of all levels to get their students building immediately without the need for constant training. All kits are reusable, easy to store and compatible with traditional classroom settings or an open concept learning space.

Cross-Curricular Compatibility

Bring a hands on "wow" factor into multiple classes and out of storage! The STEM hand's provided modular curriculum and easy set up aligns with class activities in middle and high school Lab Sciences, Computer Science, Robotics, Biotechnology, Biomedical Engineering, Science Writing, Engineering Design and more.

Career Pathways Exploration and Inspiration

No more paper towel roll experiments! Allow students to explore STEM career fields with materials and curriculums based on real world technology. Explore the engineering design process like a real engineer or design and build your own prosthetic solution to real world challenges in Biomedical Engineering.

Advance to the Next Level

Want to bring your new skills to the next level? Get involved with the NeuroMaker Creative Competition and create your own unique solution to a real world issue using the Brainco STEM kit. All submissions are reviewed online by real engineers, removing the distance, cost, organization and time needed from in person STEM events. Join us from anywhere in the world!

Modular and Expandable Curriculums

STEM Hand compatible curriculums are organized into individual activities, units and full class curriculum packs. Choose which content is right for you and get right to building! Lessons are aligned with NGSS, CSTA, ISTE and other standards.
