The STEM Alive project from RAFT and KVIE Public Television has created valuable tools that reinforce a variety of scientific concepts.


We are continuing to look for new ways to provide our members with value added products and services. RAFT and KVIE launched a new series of educational training videos, which are focused on the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) curriculum. Many of the school districts throughout the country are adopting this new approach. The training videos are designed to provide you an interactive teaching tool to be used with your students.

The STEM Alive project was funded by a grant from the
Morgan Family Foundation
