Welcome to the STEMSS page of the Murphy Library, Alice Hagar Curriculum Resources Center. This page is designed to provide resources to PK-12 teachers, pre-service teachers, librarians, and others interested in STEMSS education.
On Monday, March 10, 2014, local educators will have an opportunity to discover award-winning resources in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math and art (STEAM) for use in K-12 classrooms. The K-12 STEAM Teacher Resource Day will be held in the Alice Hagar Curriculum Center on the 2nd floor of Murphy Library at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse from 2:00 to 5:30 p.m. The program is free of charge, and participants may drop in at any time during the session.
This is the eighth in the annual series of programs highlighting STEM resources which this year also includes Art. These programs are a hands-on experience for many local educators and students. Participants are able to browse, read and review award-winning, non-fiction books, DVDs, software and similar resources specifically selected to be relevant to K-12 teachers, librarians, school media center administrators and other educators
According to Dr. Tim Gerber, the program organizer and a biology professor at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, “The comment I get most often from teachers who have attended the resource day is that they feel so much better prepared to select specific materials that will benefit their classes and their curricula without having to guess. It saves them time and money in the long run.” The books and other materials are purchased by Murphy Library annually from Science Books & Films’ “Best Lists,” the National Science Teachers Association’s “Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children,” and other annual lists. Following this event, the collection of materials is available in the Murphy Library curriculum collection year-round for review by students in the School of Education as well as other students, faculty, and community members.
