12th annual STEM Teacher Resources Days highlight renovated center

Local educators have an opportunity to discover award-winning resources in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to use in their K-12 classrooms during a UW-La Crosse event.

The 12th Annual STEM Teacher Resources Days will run from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31, through Friday, Nov. 2, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, in the newly renovated Alice Hagar Curriculum Center on the second floor of Murphy Library. The program is free; participants may stop in at any time during the sessions.

The event offers a great opportunity for local educators and students to get hands-on experience with STEM resources before making purchases for their classrooms. For more than a decade, the program has brought together resources and expertise from UWL, K-12 schools and other area colleges. Participants can browse, read, and review award-winning books and other resources specifically selected for K-12 teachers, librarians, school media center administrators and other educators.

The materials available are purchased annually by Murphy Library from Science Books & Films’ “Best Lists,” the National Science Teachers Association’s “Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children” and other annual lists and awards. Following the event, the books will be available in the Murphy Library Alice Hagar Curriculum Resource Center year-round for review by students in the UWL School of Education, as well as other students, faculty and community members.

The program is sponsored by Murphy Library. For more information or to request disability accommodations, email Teri Holford, Murphy Library, or call 608.785.8944.
