9 Terrific STEM Teaching Resources Every now and then, we get an unexpected surprise from someone as interested in supporting teachers and students as we are. When this happens, it usually means someone has gone out of their way to research and produce a valuable list of incredible online resources for use in education, and done a great job of doing so. I’m happy to say it’s happened yet again. We recently received a list of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) links from Jasmine Dyoco at EducatorLabs. If you’re a teacher and you haven’t yet checked out this fine organization, please do so. They are one of the many collaborative groups who are working tirelessly to produce caches of freebies and other information to help educators with their work.

STEM Activities: Tensile Bubbles I’m always on the lookout for STEM activities with a WOW factor and today’s engineering project for kids probably tops that list. I mean just look at the bubble below- yes, THAT IS A BUBBLE! And shhhh don’t tell anyone, it’s not too hard to make…. Ever since I saw this cubic bubble I’ve wanted to make a whole host of 3D shaped bubble wands to explore how the outer wand structure affects the shape of the inverted bubbles that form. It’s also kind of addicting to make them..….
STEM Resource Finder A collaboration between the CREATE for STEM Institute at Michigan State University and the Concord Consortium. This set of simulations is used in the Health in Our Hands curriculum (HiOH) to study how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms. The simulations can also be used independently from the curriculum to investigate gene-environment interactions. The Curriculum STEM Resources Welcome to the STEM page, sponsored by YALSA's STEM Task Force. We hope you will use this wiki page to get ideas on how to effectively integrate STEM into your library programs and services. And what is STEM you ask? STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math and is one of the hottest topics in education and library circles.
