CA-STEM partners with two NSF-funded Colordo School of Mines Engineering Research Centers in its funding, outreach and training efforts:
Faculty from these centers provide teachers with the most up-to-date reseach in renewable energy and water utilization and conservation. Sustainable and efficient use of both energy and water are discussed in simple context which, along with exciting age-appropriate experiments and activities, will enliven the science and math classes for elementary and middle school students.
