Materials Management

If you’ve ever seen an EiE materials kit, you know that our units are materials heavy! Hands-on, problem-based activities require a lot of advanced preparation, but the results are well worth the effort. And of course, our PD team is here to walk you through every step! In this session, you’ll get a tour of our online store, learn about creating models and preparing testing stations for your class, and get tons of tips about materials management. Join us on January 10, 2018 at 4 PM EST!
