Lending Library



Welcome to the Region 4 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering,
and Mathematics) Lending Library


The Region 4 STEAM Lending Library equips our Region 4 teachers with classroom kits of ready-to-use, hands-on resources for teaching engaging lessons in STEM. The Lending Library will provide access and professional development for STEM tools or technology. This will allow teachers and district leaders an opportunity to create learning experiences using STEM tools on a trial/test basis. Providing hands-on-teaching in a “pilot” environment makes sense as you apply academic content and explore creativity with the tools as you evaluate possible purchases for your classroom.






  • Share STEM experience with our communities and support campuses, teachers and students in the areas of STEM, computational thinking and problem based learning.
  • Provide professional development that support STEM learning in the areas of coding, robotics, computational thinking and engineering design.
