Every week, I add to it, maintain it, and improve it to help expand how these 5,000 videos and their creators might connect with more educators, librarians, parents, and communities.
When classrooms moved online in 2020, TKSST’s traffic almost tripled—evidence that this handy collection of STEAM-focused content is needed by educators and parents. TKSST’s costs—site hosting, dev support, and newsletter—also increased significantly with the traffic, but since kids were now using TKSST for remote classwork, I resolved to keep the site ad-free. That’s when I turned to our readers to stay up and running.
Membership pays for site hosting, support from an awesome developer, our free newsletter, and a basic salary that guarantees that I can stay focused on this project while supporting my family.
