The STEM Resource Center (SRC) maintains a library of materials appropriate for every grade level and STEM content area, including lesson plans, books, and a wealth of hands-on and demonstration materials such as discrepant events, models, and Vernier equipment. These items can be borrowed at no cost and consumables can be purchased at cost. There is a lab available to work on small research projects, “test-drive” curriculum activities and prepare materials for outreach programs. The SRC also maintains a flexible classroom, designed for both traditional lectures and hands-on inquiry learning. This space can be used to test new instructional techniques and to serve as an educational research classroom.
