We recently added a new feature to instructables projects: Teacher Notes!
Teacher Notes can be added to any instructable to show how it was used in the classroom. Educators can upload photos, lesson plans, and other resources to demonstrate their favorite ways to bring hands-on learning to their students.
Teacher Notes appear between the into and first step, as you can see below.
