Subscription Information for Michigan School Districts

Through a generous investment by the Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation, Mi-STAR has developed a middle school STEM curriculum and associated professional learning program to serve Michigan educators and their students. To ensure continued access to the curriculum, professional learning, and network of educators, Mi-STAR implemented a subscription fee in 2019. Contact for pricing questions.
