I shared the following websites and resources with an Oklahoma City suburban school administrator recently who is helping start a STEM program at one of their elementary schools next fall.

- Chris Simon’s STEM curriculum site
- Amy Luffelhotz’ STEM class blog
- Independence Elementary School’s Scratch Club site
- January 2013 Yukon Review article about kids learning Scratch

- Deepening our Learning Through Storytelling: creativity, STEM and stories
- Support STEM Skills with Scratch
