Casio’s Portfolio of Calculators, Electronic Musical Instruments and Projectors Provide Students and Educators with Essential Tools for STEAM Education

DOVER, NJ, OCTOBER 19, 2018 - Today, National STEM/STEAM Day is celebrated as a day to inspire children to pursue their interests in STEAM-related curriculum. Casio America, Inc., a leader in the education space, remains dedicated to making STEAM education more engaging for students. From calculators to keyboards, and even projectors, Casio's portfolio of education tools supports a STEAM-friendly environment for students and teachers alike.

fx-CG50 PRIZM™ Graphing Calculator
Casio's fx-CG50 part of the lineup of PRIZM graphing calculators, offers expanded features and an improved catalog function, supporting students' exploration of math and allowing quick and easy use of commands. Students have the ability to easily draw 3D graphs such as planes, cylinders and spheres, and view them from various angles in order to better analyze their shape. A cross-section option and a special zoom function enable the student to further examine the graph for even greater analysis. The fx-CG50 is also jam-packed with features that enable students to solve the most challenging equations and enhance their understanding of mathematics. In particular the Picture Plot function enables users to plot graphs over pictures of real-life scenes and offers a color LCD with a full textbook-style display. Additionally, the PRIZM includes a multitude of functions that leverage the color LCD in graphing objects like dotted lines, circles and bars, and grid lines.

CT-X700 Keyboard
Musical education plays a role in STEAM education as well. Casio's CT-X700 is a portable keyboard for advanced beginners to intermediate players that includes upgraded technology and sound quality at an affordable price. Featuring the new AiX Sound Source*1 , the CT-X700 faithfully reproduces the appealing sound of acoustic instruments such as guitars, drums, basses, brass, wind instruments, string ensembles and more, faithfully reproducing subtle nuances and gestures specific to each sound. A wide range of tones and rhythm patterns, including a library of 600 tones and 195 rhythms, supports diverse musical genres that allow students to play their own musical masterpieces without limiting creativity. Students can also use the Step-Up Lesson system to easily learn songs with the display showing proper finger placement and notation. The CT-X700's class-compliant USB-MIDI port connects to any Mac, PC, Android or iOS device with no drivers or installation needed. The included music rest is designed to support tablets, and there's even a built-in smartphone shelf to hold a device as players use the CT-X700 with their favorite music apps.

XJ-UT351WN Ultra Short Throw Projector
Technology in the classroom can be an important factor in keeping students engaged with STEAM subjects. Casio's LampFree® XJ-UT351WN Ultra Short Throw projector is ideal for educators and school administrators because of its two HDMI ports, dust resistant design and ability to generate large images over a very short projection distance such as in classrooms. In particular, the built-in short throw lens and advanced mirror system provides an extremely close throw ratio (0.28:1) and projects an 80" image from just 1.5 feet away. It provides an output of up to 3,500 lumens, yet doesn't impact the teacher or student even if they're standing close to the screen. The hybrid Laser and LED light source eliminates the need for expensive and hazardous mercury lamps while delivering a 20,000 hour estimated operating life. Additionally, the wireless adapter (optional) gives educators the ability to control the projector from a smartphone or tablet through Casio's C-Assist app.
