Growing Our Community Through Collaboration
Rubber Duck Lab works hard to grow our community of educators, learners, and collaborators by working with Educational Partners near and far.
You can learn more about our Education partners by reading more below. Rubber Duck Lab is proud of our community collaborations with our Education Partners and hope you all will join us in thanking them in support project-based learning.
STS Education proudly proclaims to be made up of "computer geeks and techies, sales professionals and accounting nerds, entrepreneurs and matriarchs, customer service fanatics and story tellers." STS partners with schools, teachers, administrators and others to ensure students and educators have the right school technology supplies. They are committed to helping educators reach students through experiential technology.
Their consultative approach ensures schools understand what they need to meet their technology based goals. Then STS show curates the best products, services and purchasing options. Additionally, STS Education provided Rubber Duck Lab with our largest donation yet, a Promethean Active Panel.
Aside from providing many of the materials and supplies for Rubber Duck Lab's Makerspace, RAFT provides donated and recycled supplies at reduced costs to educators. These donated and recycled supplies are also used by RAFT to create fantastic hands-on classroom activity kits helping educators to introduce STEAM topics in new, fun ways.
Rubber Duck Lab especially appreciates RAFT's dedication to green sustainability and keeping recyclable and upcyclable materials out of landfills.
Jameco has been in business for over 40 years and carries over 50,000 semiconductors, passives, interconnects, power supplies, LEDs and other popular electronic components. They provide resources for educators and students, custom kitting programs, along with college and university curriculum kits for all skill levels. Rubber Duck Lab has partnered with Jameco to source specialty parts, unique materials, and new kits for the Makerspace.
The Western Monarch Mystery Challenge is a community science campaign formed by researchers from Washington State University, Tufts University, UC Santa Cruz, and the Xerces Society to learn more about monarchs in order to inform urgent conservation efforts. Rubber Duck Lab has been collaborating with WMMC to create educational materials to help the public learn about monarch butterflies and how individuals can get involved to help scientists with research. We appreciate WMMC's, and their partners, conservation and recovery efforts for monarchs in California!
