EDGEucating Vetted Product

We know from personal experience that teachers sometimes feel overwhelmed by the multitude of resources available. It can take a tremendous amount of time to sift through and locate the right edtech products to use in the classroom.

To help teachers make better use of their time and resources we have vetted and curated for you this collection of educational resources to use in your classroom.

EDGEucating only recommends products that we have fully vetted and believe in as part of our endorsed products list. We want this to be a place where you can purchase with confidence!  As educators, we understand the frustration of buying a product that doesn’t live up to its promises.  Our own experiences fueled our desire to start EDGEucating and begin vetting products so that this doesn’t happen to other educators.  
This is a FREE resource for educators!  The vendors pay our fees and there is no pass-through cost for you.
In addition to vetting the products, we have secured agreements with trusted vendors who offer excellent customer service. 

For a fun classroom activity that really measures up, check out the Toolbox Racer Kit.

Powered by the toolbox’s favorite occupant – the tape measure – this racer is quick and simple to build. It demonstrates the elastic potential energy of the tape measure’s spring and gets students excited about learning! Students can change out the 6′ tape measure with a bigger one.

The racing setup is simple – just tape and string. Requires a tape measure – our 6′ economy tape measure is recommended – duct tape, twine, and white glue, all sold separately.
