C-MORE Science Kits


Contact Information


Microscopes in Middle Schools

C-MORE Science Kits offer lesson plans and materials for hands-on science activities in a self-contained format. They are designed for use with a range of grade levels. Each kit provides the information and supplies necessary for educators to teach their students about a particular topic in oceanography. These easy to use kits are a great resource for any classroom.

STEM Pre-Academy will be taking over management of the C-MORE Science Kit program. We are proud to provide this new home and we look forward to continuing to serve the teachers of Hawai‘i (and the Mainland!) for years to come. Jim Foley will continue to support the program with the other members of the transition team.

Along with taking over the management and lending of the kits, we are aiming to further the work that C-MORE has started with new kit development work in the future! If you are interested in joining the development effort, please let us know at stempre+c-more@hawaii.edu.
