Founded in July 2019, Gearbox Labs, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) public charity incorporated in the State of Wisconsin.
Our mission is to produce cutting-edge and rigorous STEAM education resources and programs for schools, homeschools, out-of-school programs, and self-motivated learners.
Our first curriculum, The STEAM Edition, features 25 projects with 110 project extensions for a STEM/STEAM classroom. Our curriculum integrates engineering, design, coding in C/C++, and digital prototyping into STEM/STEAM content.
We have written the curriculum for grades 5 and up. The book can also be used in an afterschool or homeschool setting.
We piloted the curriculum between 2014 and 2019 at a private school in Monterrey Mexico with 1000 students from grades 7 through 9. The projects are easy to use, but at the same time rigorous. One student used the book as the foundation for her winning the Mexican National Science and Engineering Competition in 2017 and 2018. We have helped another school in their efforts to win the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow competition in 2020 advising them on sensors and code.
Now students use the curriculum in 17 states and 7 countries. If you are an international buyer we can ship via DHL to you or you can order from one of our partners.
This store was set up to sell those resources, services, and supporting items that are produced to advance our mission.
Our goal with the proceeds of the sales of these items is to provide free experiences with STEM, a scholarship program for students entering STEM fields, and to produce additional resources for learners.
