The STEM bundle is a curriculum-based classroom set of 4 STEM projects, each of which covers a designated STEM topic.
The bundle is designed for elementary school students, and can also be a perfect fit for science clubs, camps, and after-school programs. See case studies written by teachers who have used MEL Science bundles for their curriculum.
Value: less than $9 per project per student (if shared between a group of four students).

Students will benefit from doing a series of diverse-yet-related activities with the structured approach of this organized curriculum. This will turn hands-on science into a fun regular activity, and developing this habit will help change students' behavior and attitude toward science. This approach will build their confidence and encourage them to think scientifically about how the world works and how to solve challenges in the future.
This bundle is a convenient and helpful tool for teachers to engage students in investigation, keep track of what has been taught, and plan the curriculum further.
