In the STEM Activity Clearinghouse, librarians and library staff can find high quality, vetted STEM activities that are appropriate for library use. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
You can search and sort by audience, content level, and difficulty, among others. You can also browse collections that we’ve curated just for you! Almost all the activities in the Clearinghouse have pictures or videos of real libraries doing these activities.
Activities developed outside STAR Net have tips and tricks for implementing in your library, and will link you back to the original source so you can explore more.
