The Elementary STEM Journal

Winner of ASAE's Gold Circle Award for Most Improved Journal and produced electronically four times each school year, The Elementary STEM Journal (formerly Children's Technology and Engineering) is a dynamic, practical journal for anyone interested in technological literacy in Grades K-6. Redesigned to allow ITEEA to nearly double the amount of content to provide more hands-on activities. The Elementary STEM Journal is a theme-based journal. Article submissions are welcomed and can be sent to


The theme for Volume 24 (2019-20 school year): STEM for ALL! with the following subthemes for each issue:

24-1: Learning Opportunities: Flexibility - opportunities to meet the needs of learners, classrooms, or resources
24-2: Learning Opportunities: Integrating - opportunities that bridge disciplines for integrated learning and blur disciplinary boundaries
24-3: Learning Opportunities: Connections - opportunities to connect with community partners and the wider world
24-4: Learning Opportunities: Inclusive - opportunities to strengthen and promote inclusive environments for all learners


Notice: The Elementary STEM Journal is sponsored by ITEEA’s Elementary STEM Council. On July 1, 2018, the Children’s Council became the Elementary STEM Council to emphasize the importance of integrated STEM education at the elementary level. Children’s Technology and Engineering became The Elementary STEM Journal at the same time to reflect the Council name change and an emphasis on a broader definition of STEM.
