Starting for the 2023-24 school year, the NCESD STEM Materials Cooperative will continue to supply district members with Smithsonian Science for the Classroom units for ALL GRADES K-5.
However, new in the 2023-24 school year, there will be FOUR (4) ROTATIONS instead of three (3) rotations throughout the year.
Each district will receive ONE (1) unit per rotation; in the past, districts would receive two (2) units during one of the rotations
Kindergarten will not receive units in the fall to allow them to focus on beginning of the year priorities.
Draft of the 2023-24 rotation scheduled (not finalized)
- August – October
- November – December/January
- January – March
- March – June
