Thank you for your thorough investigation of STEM Curriculum available on the market. Currtech Integrations, www.currtechintegrations.com, publishes STEM curriculum modules that were never reviewed by your “team of experts” so I guess we missed your top ten list. Thanks.

Hello, Henderson Mill Elementary is a state STEM certified school in Atlanta, GA. Check out our website. We’ve got the WOW factor and interactive STEM Nights!

Continued. I want an actual STEM activity for the presentation with loud noises, fun stuff, and WOW factor, not just a power point slide show of what stem is. Also, needs to be able to be presented on a stage in the auditorium, not in a science lab.

I would like info on a presentation I could give to the whole school for a STEM night we have with students and parents for pre-k to 8th grade. I have been trying to figure out how to make an interactive presentation that highlights all the steps so the parents can see what STEM is about. I need help! Ideas.
