Please bear with me as I develop this list of resources – there are so many things available online, and STEM is a very broad category. We’ll work together to make sure the websites listed here are high quality, and helpful to you.
- I’m sure you’ve heard of First Robotics – if you haven’t, check it out – it’s like the high school Olympics of all things robot
- Love creating your own inventions or putting your own twist on things? Check out Maker Faire – a gathering of people doing innovative things
- Interested in space? Create a membership at the STEM Network, a hub for all things space!
- Want to learn the latest in STEM news from a smartypants girl with a great sense of humor? Check out theSTEMulus!
For Teachers and Parents:
- The Federal Registry for Educational Excellence (FREE) is a US-government run website which maintains an extensive list of teaching, learning and curriculum development resources in math, science, and STEM. Did you guess by it’s name that everything here is free?
- PBS has a similar age-searchable resource with sections for both science and math
- STEM curriculum development websites, as suggested by NEA
- The Concord Consortium is another NSF-supported depository of STEM curriculum resources, searchable by age and subject
- STEM-works – STEM-works shows a lot of cool STEM career options, and highlights real-life science career
- Educational data from pre-K through entering and staying in the workforce is cataloged and easily viewable through the National Science Foundation
- Searchable list of professional engineering societies
- I am particularly a fan of the Society of Women Engineers
I’d like to keep this list well-curated and useful to you! Please notify me if any of the links are broken, or if you have an online resource you’d like to share!
