Resources Made For Your High School Classroom

The Edacity Innovation Bank is our way of making teachers’ lives easy. We’re educators ourselves, and we know how hectic life can get. If you’re a teacher that wants to make STEM, innovation and entrepreneurship come alive for your students, but you’re not sure where to being – we are here to help!

The lesson plans are flexible – modify them to suit the unique needs of your class, or use them as-is and focus your energy on supporting your students as you move through the activities together. Use one lesson or use an entire pack to deliver the content of a full course.

Currently, the 58 lessons have been packaged into three Alberta-based CTS courses.
