Abdo Zoom STEAM includes more than 100 content pages, each integrating all five components of STEAM education – science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. An added feature in this database is a downloadable art project or activity for each topic.
“Including a tab for each STEAM component on each topic page is something we’re especially excited about,” said Creative Director Dorothy Toth. “It brings a unique holistic approach to STEAM education.”
This primary-level online encyclopedia caters precisely to the needs of a young beginning reading audience seeking a reliable research resource. As part of the site’s design process, ABDO consulted regularly with a content expert and former long-time elementary science teacher. With his guidance, ABDO combined essential school curriculum content with innovative digital technology to provide the ultimate interactive learning experience. The end result works to build student confidence in navigating a dynamic online environment independently as well as their developing research and reading skills. All of which are proven to facilitate long-term student success.
“Intuitive, easy navigation along with a bright, fun design makes exploring factual information more of an adventure for kids,” says BreAnn Rumsch, Marketing & Communications Manager at ABDO. Adds ABDO Editor-in-Chief Paul Abdo, “The Internet can be a great source for exploring ideas . . . but we all know there are pitfalls along the way as well. Abdo Zoom offers a safe online environment through which students can avoid the junk on the Web and access only relevant, appropriate content from current, credible sources.”
