The STEP UP! program offers resources for middle school science and technology teachers as well as summer professional development opportunities. The Lending Library of Design Experiences
offers activity sheets, demonstration materials and design materials for different science and engineering themes, addressing the Next Generation Science Standards. These Design Experiences can be checked out free of charge
from our lending library.
STEP UP! is the k-12 educational component of the Center for Bright Beams - National Science Foundation (NSF) Science and Technology Center. Two Design Experiences are being developed each year by teachers and graduate students just like you. If interested in being part of this program, contact us
