We might be at the end of September, but we are right in the middle of National Hispanic Heritage Month. Every year from September 15th to October 15th, Americans celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors come from Hispanic descent. So this month we celebrate those from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America in STEM with activities, books, and ways to learn more!
Visit SACNAS – Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science to get students interested in becoming Hispanic leaders in STEM!
The National Parks Service is also celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month by sharing stories and hosting the Power of Parks for Health Roundtable on October 7th.

These kits are a perfect introduction to coding, circuits, and mechanical engineering for middle and high school students. Using these kits, students build micro-karts from scratch, then outfit them with micro:bits to bring them to life through code!
Our kits provide:
You can adjust the curriculum to fit your program, so whether you have a group of students for a week or are implementing it into your semester-long class, Build Smart will fit right in.
