What we learned: Mecklenburg County Environmental Education Manager Alice Chambers liked the materials she saw on a visit with colleagues at the Austin Nature and Science Center. She and her staff are interested in presenting mathematics concepts as part of their new STEM initiative. They would like to offer more and they are interested in collaborating with us by testing displays and offering feedback. Alice sent us a list of the items she liked and we made them for her. As of July 31, 2017 we have shipped the following items and are looking forward to feedback from her staff as they plan programs for a new nature center. The items and use are listed here.

A table covered with calipers and other measuring devices, and laminated nature photographs.
