In support of the Massachusetts STEM Week (10/22-26/2018) the STEM Education Center releases three curricular resources, developed to support any educator who is interested in taking part in the upcoming STEM week. These resources include a short opening bridge design activity (one lesson or shorter), a 2-lesson STEM challenge related to properties of materials, and a full week STEM project about natural disasters.
These projects will also be addressed during the October STEM Club meetings (see below), for educators who would like to review these resources with more guidance.
