Sparking creativity with STEM kits

Co.Lab, presented by Open Source Stories, is an education experience that encourages students to collaborate and share ideas using open source principles. Through both guided workshops and do-it-yourself STEM kits—all of which were inspired by an Open Source Stories film, article, or talk—students work together as they build everything from circuit boards to interactive robots from scratch.
