Animal Jam Academy is a growing set of free educational resources targeted at engaging girls (ages 6-12) in science, engineering, the arts and technology. Designed for families, this free resource includes printable activities and videos. Animal Jam was created by the National Geographic Society and SmartBomb Interactive.

Consider how families might support STE(A)M learning at home. Over 30 years of research supports family engagement that is linked to learning to improve youth outcomes.

Contact your Regional Family Engagement Provider (FERP) for assistance with family engagement linked to learning. .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
