The I am STEM – STEM I am Library includes lessons for grades PK-7. Each lesson includes five 45-minute experiences, focuses on solving problems in books and is designed to empower students to become proud problem solvers. All lessons are aligned with grade-level ELA and math/STE standards, can be done in the classroom or remotely, and use every-day & recyclable materials.

The I am STEM Library was established with funds from the Massachusetts STEM Advisory Council (2020 & 2022), and is free and accessible to all educators during STEM Week and year-round.

Free online professional development sessions are available, guiding teachers on the problem-solving process and trying out a lesson with colleagues.

The STEM Education Center at WPI oversees the development and expansion of the library and training, in collaboration with STEM Education teachers and researchers.

We hope you enjoy solving problems with your students!
