Monthly STEM Magazine
"S.T.E.M. Magazine is not a curriculum, but rather a resource of awareness that exists to provide clarity on the subject of how we already incorporate S.T.E.M. into every class, how to encourage the creative process and cultivate curiosity in both the teacher and student. In addition, S.T.E.M. Magazine strives to encourage educators about the urgent need for this inclusion in light of their responsibility to equip students fully for their careers." -Wayne Carley, Publisher
