Affordable STEM

Affordable STEM is the concept of implementing inexpensive STEM curriculum in classrooms.  Many schools don’t have the funding to incorporate a STEM curriculum but many times these lessons take little to no funding.  As Anne Jolly, the author of STEM by Design: Strategies and Activities for Grades 4–8, stated, “STEM is about using what you know to create something that solves a problem, and there are tons of resources that will let you and your students do that”.  This can include using recyclable resources or inexpensive materials from your local grocery store.
