New STEM Resource Center Offers Educators Free STEM Materials
Repost from AZEDNEWS
 
Teachers from across the Valley got a sneak preview on April 2, 2019, of the Maricopa County School Superintendent’s STEM Resource Center,a new facility offering teachers and schools within Maricopa County free STEM materials provided by Amazon. Along with the materials, the center offers training to integrate new approaches to lessons in STEM. The teachers from Deer Valley Unified and Phoenix Elementary School districts toured the 6,000-square-foot resource center in Phoenix, attended a hands-on training session and had the opportunity to “shop” for STEM materials to use in their classrooms. Since 2018, Amazon has donated thousands of STEM-related products to support Valley teachers. The Maricopa County School Superintendent Steve Watson then distributes those items to Makerspaces, science programs and STEM labs within the county.
