STEM Resource Center

 STEM Resource Center

At the STEM Resource Center, teachers have the opportunity to collaborate with other STEM instructors and collect resources donated by local businesses to use in potential STEM projects. Past items have included bluetooth speakers, solar and motion lighting, R/C toys, cameras, batteries and more.

Register for an upcoming session by selecting from the options below. Each session includes discussions on different topics or experience levels, but all will include time to gather resources to use in your classroom. Please choose the session that works best for your needs. Space is limited, and certain sessions may fill quickly. Additional sessions will be added pending available inventory of donations. To receive updates by e-mail when additional sessions are added, click below.
