STEM Resources for K–12 Educators

This website provides access to a database of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) resources for K–12 classrooms. Compiled by the DOE’s Office of Science Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists, the resources include vetted labs, activities, videos, and articles from leading science and education organizations, such as the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, PBS Education Foundation, and others. Search for resources by grade level, STEM discipline, or resource type. Selected activities from each grade level include Pinwheels, for grades K–2, in which students learn about wind energy, what devices use it, and how wind creates movement; Magnets and Electromagnets, for grades 3–5, in which students make and test electromagnets using size D batteries and a length of wire; Making Stuff Activity Guide, for grades 6–8, in which students conduct experiments exploring the characteristics of materials like strength, electric conductivity, magnetism, and viscosity; and Radiation Makes House Calls, for grades 9–12, in which students demonstrate that some household items are radioactive.
