Snow College STEM Kits (K-12; All Subjects)

Screen Shot 2020 10 30 at 11.46.10 AMSnow College is partnering with CUES in making its STEM resources more easily accessible to all teachers and students in the CUES region. Explore the resources below to see how you can make STEM come alive with your students through the use of the STEM Check-out Kits. These kits were provided through a grant from the National Informal STEM Education (NISE) Network and can be used in your own classroom, or plan an Earth and Space school field trip to the Snow campus. These kits were created in collaboration with NASA and each one provides hands-on Earth and Space Science experiences with connections to science, technology, and society for your students.
