The IU8 lending center has myriad STEM-related instructional tools and equipment for all classrooms. The equipment encourages a student-centered approach to learning that promotes curiosity, creativity, artistic expression, collaboration, communication, problem-solving, critical thinking, and design thinking. These resources have been purchased for IU8 districts and libraries through our partnerships with the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation, UPMC, and CSB2 Ecosystem (funded by PAsmart Advancing Grant). These tools and resources are a great complement to any classroom to help create STEM fluent and STEM skilled citizens.
At IU8, we offer and facilitate a wide variety of trainings. STEM tools and concepts have been a focus over the last few years. In this section, you will find information about upcoming trainings.Learn More
