Who created this and why?
This website is a space for Wesley Fryer, a grade 4-5 STEM teacher at Independence Elementary School in Yukon, Oklahoma, to collect and share ideas for STEM resources. This site includes lesson plan links and unit curriculum resources. Wes started a fulltime teaching contract with Yukon Public Schools on Nov 1, 2013. He taught STEM at IES through May 2015, when he accepted a job as the Director of Technology for Casady School (starting in July 2015.)
