  1. Building a K–12 STEM Lab: A Step-by-Step Guide for School Leaders and Tech Coaches

    Few resources are available for district and school leaders looking to establish successful STEM labs.

Building a K-12 STEM Lab addresses this challenge from the perspective of the leader, identifying opportunities for capacity building and ensuring equal access and equity for all students. The comprehensive and flexible approach outlined in this book will help school and district leaders develop productive community partnerships in support of STEM education within the STEM lab and throughout the school.
