MidTN STEM Lending Library

Effective immediately, the STEM Lending Library will suspend activity until further notice. We are following the guidelines issued by the university, school districts throughout the region, and in accordance with state orders. The Lending Library will re-open when those institutions return to regular operations and we feel like it is safe 
and beneficial to do so. Thank you for your practice and we look forward to working with you in the future!

If you require any further information, feel free to contact us at: midtnstem@mtsu.edu
The Middle Tennessee STEM Innovation Hub, housed at Middle Tennessee State University, has hundreds of items available to support a variety of STEM lessons. We have items appropriate for different grade levels K-12 and assist students in learning coding, math, science, engineering, and technology.These resources are available to teachers in the Middle Tennessee region for free and may require some training. Middle Tennessee STEM Innovation Hub is excited to partner with you and be a resource to enhance your classroom.
