College basketball season is coming to a close, and the CECH Library has a new take on the classic March Madness tournament bracket — Mixed Materials Madness 2020! Each week in March some of our best mixed materials kits will face off in a head-to-head tournament to choose the year’s fan favorite. The winners of these match-ups will be determined weekly by popular vote of our library users. We encourage everyone to fill out a bracket AND to vote on their favorite mixed materials each week.
So what are mixed materials? Mixed materials are dynamic instructional materials, specifically curated to support a wide variety of PK-12 curricula. At CECH Library, mixed materials include kits, games, models, puppets, posters, and more. Mixed materials may be checked out by anyone at UC for a period of 3 weeks.
Stop by the information desk at the CECH Library to fill out and drop off your bracket by March 4th. If you select the winner, you’ll will be entered in a drawing to win a Starbucks gift card.
