Free and Accessible C-STEM Materials
The Catholic Schools Center of Excellence (CSCOE) and the University of St. Thomas School of Engineering partner in supporting STEM education in the 155 Catholic elementary schools within in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and Greater Minnesota.
Free of charge, Catholic elementary school educators can borrow STEM kits which are provided by the University of St. Thomas School of Engineering's STEM Lending Library. Our lending library coordinator mails these kits which include virtual reality goggles, programmable robots, Keva Planks, engineering kits and more to these schools. The School of Engineering and CSCOE provide a valuable resource to these schools that might otherwise not be able to afford or access these materials for their STEM instruction.
