Discover STEM Education Resources



Cara O'Malley, Elizabeth Benham


The National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) invites educators to discover STEM resources on the NIST Educational STEM Resource (NEST-R) registry! Published by NIST scientists, engineers, & staff, NEST-R content is free & publicly available. It can improve science teaching and learning through real-world applications, engaging videos & articles, interviews with diverse scientists, classroom materials, internship & PD info, & more. NEST-R is a bridge into NIST, a world-renowned federal laboratory focused on measurement science, standards, & technology. NIST work touches every STEM area, including the Metric System, the smart electric power grid, electronic health records, atomic clocks, nanomaterials, computer chips, earthquake-resistant skyscrapers, & communication networks. Attendees will see how other educators identified relevant NEST-R resources & incorporated them into their curriculum. They will leave with NIST swag, such as rulers, the Metric Pyramid, & stickers!
