At the 2014 STAO Conference Actua presented for the first time and we were so excited that the room was packed. It was a great experience to share our resources with teachers who were passionate about STEM. From squishy circuits, Rube Goldberg machines, and wind turbines, we have so many different ideas that we would love to share with you.
