STEM Content and Resources
The STEM Content and Resource database was created by the Arizona STEM Network to provide access to quality STEM resources and to support STEM offerings statewide. This page offers a wide variety of content rich resources and links, organized around five separate categories. Each resource has been evaluated and scored through a peer reviewed rubric process (download rubric) by a team of knowledgeable STEM Advisors representing K-12 and higher education. The resources may also be searched and sorted by STEM subject.
