STEM Equipment Library
The National Institute for Education Statistics have found that Texas teachers are spending an average of $459 of their own money on school supplies without being reimbursed. This number is likely to be higher in high-poverty areas. We also know it is essential to have these exciting educational tools to break through to the kids in high-poverty areas that need it the most.
Providing tools to our educators through a library system allows them to plan the adventurous lessons that will make a difference in children’s lives without footing the often non-reimbursable bill.
The STEM Equipment Library Program is aimed at providing K-12 teachers in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields with the often costly supplies that make all of the difference for their lessons.
