STEM Projects

We are offering  ‘STEM Adventures’ on Saturdays at the Museum of International Cultures. Each 3-hour program will have 2 hands-on workshops. Each of the 2 workshop rooms can seat 12 students; thus we can host groups of 24 or fewer people. Our current workshop topics are “Electronics Magic” and “Designing for Flight”.  The subject level is for students of grades 6,7,8 and parents are invited to attend also. Interested groups should contact Penny Ball at penny@acm.org or 972-709-1957 to arrange an event. We may have some other topics available. Expected fee of $200 for the program with 2 workshop topics because we need to pay the presenters.

See the STEM Adventures sub-page for photos and more information about the workshop topics.

See the STEM resources page for pdf files and links to some useful websites related to STEM  opportunities.
