STEM TLC Leads...

science resources for educators of all kinds

The explorations are written using STEM TLC's PEP, or Phenomenon Exploration Protocol. PEPs are fomatted to be used during this time of virtual teaching and at home science learning, but also as a model of phenomenon-driven classroom instruction.
