Teaching STEM Through Play: Findings from Speedometry’s Pilot Program

Speedometry is a STEM curriculum using Hot Wheels in the classroom, and is co-created by USC Rossier School of Education and the Mattel Children’s Foundation.

Professors and staff in the school’s online teaching degree program just produced a four-part blog series that offers a deep dive into this STEM curriculum. It includes data and insights into the research initiative’s methodology and findings, as well as best practices for educators and researchers partnering together.

“At the core of Speedometry is the idea that it is possible to get students excited about science early on,” notes one USC Rossier faculty member. “The school and Mattel are working with schools across the country to get boys and girls engaged in STEM learning at young ages.”

Read their blog series to learn more about the Speedometry curriculum and how you can implement it in your classroom.
