Marketplace Update

At Upper Story we create STEM toys that take complex concepts and make them deeply intuitive and understandable through tangible play. Students will learn how a computer works and how electronics work by playing with our screen-free/unplugged activities. Students get to build marble powered computers by adding simple switches to their boards and build the world's 1st mechanical equivalent of electronics with chains running between sprockets instead of electricity running through wires. Come play with us and you will see that STEM can be not only fun, but addictive. These games will change the way you see the world. Visit us at to see Turing Tumble and Spintronics in action! Only approved educational items are reimbursable. Please visit this link for full details.

Homeschoolers may only purchase the following:

  • Learning curriculum (including books)
  • Learning materials: consumables i.e. supplies which are consumed, destroyed, or expended by the student in the process of use
  • Manipulatives: physical objects that are used as teaching tools to engage students in hands-on learning.

Please note that ACE account funds cannot be used for the purchase of electronic devices.
