TUCSON, Ariz. — More than 100 teachers from Pima County are going back to the classroom today during their summer break.

They're learning how to best use 'STEM' in the classroom.

That's science, technology, engineering, and math.

It's called the 'STEMAZING Projects 2019 Summer Institute.' It kicked off today.

For three days teachers participate in hands-on STEM related activities.

Some activities include coding, building lego molecules, gardening, and engineering robots.

Teachers from STEM Program say "A teacher can use the robots with english language arts. They can use the robots with social studies. It doesn't matter what type of topic they are teaching there is a connection that they can make."

The STEMAZING Project is a county initiative.

Tucson Power is sponsoring this event.
