The STEM Outreach mission is to provide high quality, innovative after school program and outreach to students and educators of all levels. Our programs mine and nurture 21st Century skills in science, technology, engineering, math, art, literature and music. We seek to create “A-Ha!” moments, to spark the imagination, and to inspire today’s investigators to become tomorrow’s innovators.
