STEM Resources

STEM Resources (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math)

Engineering is Elementary Project (EiE)  
EiE is a research-based, standards-driven, and classroom-tested curriculum that integrates engineering and technology concepts and skills with elementary science topics. EiE lessons not only promote science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning in grades 1-5, but also connect with literacy and social studies. A list of California districts and schools using this project will be posted on the CDE Webpage.

Engineering the Future: Science, Technology, and the Design Process (EtF)  

EtF is a full-year course designed to introduce high school students to the world of technology and engineering, towards becoming technologically literate citizens. Designed as a full year course, teachers have taught variations ranging from using one project, to teaching a half year course, to conducting a course that runs for one and a half years. A list of California districts and schools using this project will be posted on the CDE Webpage.

NASA for Educators  
NASA for Educators provides resources for kindergarten through college teachers and students.


NASA's Education Materials Finder helps teachers locate resources that can be used in the classroom.

PBS KIDS' Design Squad Nation  
With funding from the National Science Foundation and the Bechtel Foundation, the Website provides elementary teachers with over 100 easy-to-do engineering design projects that can be replicated either in the classroom or used as do-at-home activities for students and their parents.

Space.com  
Launched in 1999, SPACE.com is a source for news of astronomy, skywatching, space exploration, commercial spaceflight, and related technologies.

STEM Connect  

STEM Connect provides real-world STEM curriculum and career development resources from Discovery Education highlighting the connections among science, technology, engineering and math.

The Practical Uses of Math and Science (PUMA)  

This is an Online Journal of Mathematics and Science, at NASA. This is a collection of examples ("lessons" or ""activities") showing how math and science topics taught in K-12 classes can be used in interesting settings, including everyday life.

U.S. EPA Educational Resources for Teachers and Students  
This is a collection of information, resources and publications, and links to awards, grants, workshops, conferences and other programs.
