STEMchat just keeps getting better! I’m thrilled that Thursday night’s chat (9 PM Eastern, 8 Central, 6 Pacific) has a rock-star panel that includes parents @JeanneBernish– a “math-not” with a son who plans to major in math in college next fall and @MissLori– who puts on a brave face so her kids don’t fear math.
Having a sponsor makes the chat more sustainable and allows me to provide extra goodies to you, as you’ll see below. Having a sponsor will not affect the goal of #STEMchat, which is to bring parents, teachers and STEM educators together to share ideas and resources.
Now about those goodies: Texas Instruments is providing The Maker Mom with two TI-Nspire™ CX graphing/scientific handheld units to give away. One will be given to someone who RSVPs below and attends #STEMchat and the other will be awarded to a chat participant shortly after the chat is over.
|TI-Nspire™ CX Handheld|
TI-Nspire™ CX technology grows with your student. Free software updates enable the unit to last from middle school through college. Another bonus: the TI-Nspire CX handhelds are allowed where tablets and mobile devices are not. The TI-Nspire CX handhelds are permitted for use on tests such as ACT, SAT, AP, IB, PSAT/NMSQT.
Its full-color screen allows users to color code objects and equations and it also permits users to incorporate images and photos. The software included with the calculator means that students can work on their desktops (PC or Mac) in an environment that is very similar to their handheld unit.
Enter to win:

Still feeling lucky? Enter TI’s contest to have Emmy-nominated Bing Bang Theory actress and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik teach an integrated math/science lesson at your child’s school. She’ll also bring with a whole bunch of TI product goodness for the school or students to keep.
For good karma and to keep up with the latest in TI’s educational technology:
