EUREKUS was founded by STEAM pioneers and teaching artists Monica and Tyler Aiello. For over a decade, we've worked to transform STEM teaching and learning through art, design and making. Eurekus is a result of our collaborations with NASA, artists, scientists and educators striving to empower learning and foster creative communities. As STEAM specialists for NASA, schools, colleges, libraries, museums and companies, we design innovative education and outreach programs with a focus on collective discovery. Our approach is grounded in STEAM and the Maker Movement - investigating STEM through creativity for deep, holistic and fun learning. We've personally designed, authored and tested each of our curricula with hundreds of students and hope you enjoy! - The Aiellos www.eurekus.org
Over the last decade, we've developed many arts-integrated STEM programs for formal and informal institutions nation-wide. Each year we also personally teach thousands of students and train fellow educators in effective STEAM & Maker Ed practice. From pioneering curriculum to engaging projects and innovative PD, we strive to empower learning both in and outside the traditional school setting. Our students, both youth and adults, have a blast becoming “Artist Explorers” to investigate how our world and universe works. Our programs connect-the-dots through the creative process to link STEM topics with a unique cultural and historical twist. We take a holistic approach to education - fusing STEAM, Design Thinking, PBL and Making - to engage imaginations through hands-on learning and student-led inquiry. Each of our curriculum and projects on TPT have been implemented many times with real students - tested and revised for success! We also include our many implementation tips and supply resource links gathered over years of experience.
