Also check out The Early Years blog, another early childhood resource for (mostly science) STEM learning where you can contribute to the conversation by posting a comment! Sign in to vote!

Posted 3/30/2011 11:46am Matt BurgessIntern at AFCEA Educational Foundation AFCEA is offering 50 $5k scholarships for students preparing to be a STEM teacher. Scholarship recipients are also eligible to receive 3 $1k teaching tools grant once they begin teaching a STEM subject. The grant can be used in creative ways to promote STEM, like starting a club or going on a field trip. It's a great opportunity for students and to promote STEM. http://stem.afcea.org Sign in to vote! Posted 3/30/2011 12:20pm Stacie HarrisonK-12 Outreach at American Society for Engineering Education Hi. Please check out our site: www.egfi-k12.org. The home page is a fun introduction to engineering for ages 8-16 (it works on many levels...), and we have lessons and activities for all grade levels, too. Here's a link to our teacher site: http://teachers.egfi-k12.org/. We also have a free newsletter for teachers, great materials for the classroom, etc. Please feel free to email me if you'd like further info. firstname.lastname@example.org Sign in to vote!

Posted 5/12/2011 9:06am Marshall BarnesFounder, Director of SuperScience for High School Physics By fall I hope to have the expanded version of SuperScience for High School Physics online as a resource. It be a STEAM site (Science, Technology, Engineering Art, Math) and will include an active directory of scientists, engineers, mathematicians and artists that will be available to give in class presentations at some level (probably area dependent) or at least through Skype, and also be a repository of materials that teachers can use to make STEM more interesting by introducing students to what is going on in the real world of advanced concept science and technology. When it's ready, I'll post a link here at Edutopia. Sign in to vote! Posted 5/15/2011 8:03pm Dr. John BirksDirector, Global Ozone (GO3) Project In the Global Ozone or "GO3" Project students measure ground-level ozone and meteorological parameters outside their schools and continuously upload their data to Google Earth to share with other students around the world. Each US school is encouraged to have an international "sister" school, and students interact with one another on a social network similar to Facebook but with advanced features such as data plotting and analysis, environmental forums and blogs, chat, contests, videos, educational games, etc. We recently held our first Ozone Summit in Denver on May 2, the first day of Air Quality Awareness Week, with 120 students 30 teachers and 25 scientists and other professionals participating. There is a free downloadable curriculum on air pollution and free online Moodle courses for students and teachers on the GO3 website. GO3 students are acting as "citizen scientists" by making scientifically valid measurements and creating the world's first global ozone monitoring network. I fact, the EPA's AIRNow Program plans to start using the student data for making their air pollution maps and forecasts. Students interpret their data and the data of other students around the world and discuss their interpretations in blogs and forums and at Ozone Summits. We are hoping to expand the program to all 50 states and most countries throughout the world. The cost of the equipment for the program is $4,500, but the GO3 Foundation is constantly seeking funds for schools who have signed up for the project. You can sign your school up at www.go3project.com. The website has downloadable proposals for making your own submissions to local companies. We will soon be posting resources for student-run air quality awareness campaigns that will raise funds for the equipment as well. The overhead for the project and support of some schools is provided by 2B Technologies, Inc. as an educational outreach program. Sign in to vote! Posted 9/20/2011 12:23pm Herbsao This is a great list. Thanks to all the posters! There's a company in Southern California you might be interested in. They're called Rolling Robots and they specialize in STEM workshops for kids. They do after school programs, summer camps, even birthday parties. They post their lesson plans online for kids to do at home. You can check them out at http://rollingrobots.com/STEM-education-projects.

Posted 2/29/2012 7:09am GinnieElementary Technology Teacher I have been teaching technology in a K-12 online school for six years. I developed my own courses that have STEM units. Have you checked K12? With the Obama administration's emphasis on STEM, many providers have developed more STEM resources. I structure units around projects, so I found sites like Edheads and PBS Design Squad helpful. ITEA also has well-developed resources, although they are not online courses. Sign in to vote!
