Sliding into Science with Literature

Did you know that good books can serve as the perfect hook to Engage your students or provide an explanation for the science concepts they are investigating? STEMscopes has a list of suggested books broken down by grade level and TEK. Check out the Teacher's Toolkit in STEMscopes or email me for a brief "how to".

Science Store Information

Don't forget, the Science Store delivers! Make sure you allow enough time to have the items delivered to your campus (anywhere between one-two weeks). You can locate the catalog in Eduphoria in the section labeled "Science Store." After you find what you need, simply email them at sciencestore@lisd.net. If you need your items sooner, you can visit the store directly Monday-Thursday from 3-5 PM. Right off 121/Fish Hatchery Rd.


COMING SOON!! A New and IMPROVED catalog with pictures! Janice is working hard to purchase new materials and we want to ENHANCE what is made available to you!

Corry Thompson- Central Zone (Elementary Science Learning Facilitator)

I have been an educator for 14 years, with 11 years of experience through our wonderful LISD district. I have been fortunate to provide support for science through many roles as a curriculum writer, presenter, and campus leader. I have presented at many conferences and served as a SMART Exemplary Educator & recently becoming an Apple Vanguard Coach. I am passionate about student learning and supporting the needs of all learners. My favorite aspect of science is the natural curiosity and excitement in students learning. As a life-long learner, myself, I am dedicated to supporting & assisting others to develop their own expertise in science.
