In today’s technologically advanced world, workers who are computational thinkers with a firm grasp of science, engineering, math, and technology (STEM) are in high demand. However, preparing today’s students for the work of the future is challenging. Many educators, especially early childhood and elementary teachers, do not have a STEM background so the task of integrating those subjects into daily classroom lessons can feel overwhelming.

Lex Gillette, a 4x Paralympic silver medalist, was hyperexcited about making his mom’s mac and cheese, a meal he grew up with. He called her one weekend to walk him through each recipe step. But just before finishing up the last one, he realized that his favorite dish wasn’t going to be like his mom’s. He had messed up, he believed. And it bummed him out.
