In one place, teachers can get everything from drones to giant thermometers for use in their classes.

“It’s about how we can work together to strengthen that relationship between kid and teacher,” said Steve Watson, Maricopa County School superintendent.

Educators said the goal of the STEM Resource Center is for kids to have more hands-on learning, care of hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of supplies.

The gadgets are all the result of a year-long partnership between local educators and Amazon.

Going forward, educators expect the facility’s shelves to be stocked to the max, giving kids some inspiration in science.
