Here are a few (optional) sources for science material and programs shared by Dr. Peter Bartanen and by teachers who have received grants. If you have additional resources to share, please send them to

Engineering is Elementary Kits (Boston Museum of Science)

Hummingbird kits: (robotics kits)

LEGO Mindstorms (the “gold standard” of robotics kits for 4-8):

Delta Kits (K-8):

Little Bits Electronics for Education

Vernier: – digital data collection, probes, and lesson manuals They sell all types of material (this is where I bought microscope supplies), but they also have free downloadable lesson plans.
