Innovative Educators Workshop Resources

The West TN STEM Hub was pleased to host two teacher workshops in June 2017 through sponsorship from TSIN.  We enjoyed working with teachers on exciting hands-on activites with Cublets Robotics, sharing information about the Hub's resources for teachers, and providing details on STEM kits and curriculum available to teachers through the Civil Air Patrol!
