The STEMAZing Project is pleased to announce the launch of its new website www.STEMAZing.org. The STEMAZing Project identifies high quality STEM resources and provides professional development to PreK through 12th grade educators.

STEMAZing.org houses The STEMAZing Project’s collection of educator-to-educator recommended resources for PreK through 12th grade educators. From videos to lessons to competitions and much more, STEMAZing.org is the go-to place for educators to find STEM resources.

The STEMAZing Project’s new website is uniquely intended to provide teachers with access to STEM resources that can otherwise be difficult and time-consuming to discover. All of the resources listed on the site are recommended by fellow teachers and vetted by The STEMAZing Project’s teacher-leader cohort. In this way, teachers can spend less time searching for high-quality resources and more time engaging with and integrating those resources into their own curriculum.

“STEMAZing.org is a tremendous resource! It brings together everything we could possibly want to support STEM education. From scientist profiles, to inspirational and educational videos, to opportunities for students and schools alike – STEMAZing.org is an amazing STEM treasure trove!” said Kirstin Bittel, Magnet Coordinator and Science Olympiad Coach at Mansfeld Magnet Middle School – STEM Plus.

The STEMAZing Project was launched in the summer of 2014 out of the Office of the Pima County School Superintendent under the direction of DaNel Hogan, former Catalina Foothills High School science teacher and Einstein Fellow with the U.S. Department of Energy.

STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) is increasingly the focus of education initiatives and reform. The STEMAZing Project is dedicated to empowering PreK to 12th grade educators to enhance and improve their STEM curricula.

“I am excited about how STEMAZing.org will make it easier for PreK to 12th grade teachers, both in Southern Arizona and beyond, to find incredible STEM resources. There are lots of great STEM resources which teachers do not have time to wade through. STEMAZing.org won’t require wading as all of our resources will be recommended by educators, for educators!” said project director DaNel Hogan.

STEMAZing.org will launched the week of May 21 and is available for free online. The STEMAZing Project will continue to add resources to its index and is working on mobile optimization for smartphones and tablets.
