Through PNNL's partnerships with like-minded individuals and organizations, we are able to share STEM resources such as those listed below.

Materials Science & Technology Teacher Handbook Icon

Materials Science & Technology Teacher Handbook

PNNL and DOE developed a materials science course outline that covers the fundamentals of ceramics, glass, metals, polymers and composites. It combines hands-on activities, demonstrations and long-term student project descriptions. The handbook has been used by teachers across the country and is a resource for the ASM Teacher Materials Camps. Download the handbook here.

Using a Science Notebook Icon

Using a Science Notebook

To think like a scientist, students need to learn to record findings like a scientist. Washington State LASER shows how to introduce science notebooks to students. Check out this site for examples of student work from paper and electronic notebooks, Frequently Asked Questions about using science notebooks, and examples of entries from PNNL scientists and engineers.
