STEM Creators / Resources ~ A Living Post
Updated: Jan 24
Recently, I had a call with an engineer looking to start a blog. They were interested in finding other content creators in this space to follow. I'm going to share the folks that I know of and shared with this individual and will leave the comments open on this post for you to add yourself or other recommendations. Please note, my intent is to share content creators and resources geared toward professionals; hubs and listicles abound on the internet for primary education STEM resources.
