What are Saturday STEM Safaris?

Young learners (preK - 3rd grade) and their families (older siblings are welcome) will experience a variety of engaging, interactive learning activities inspired by science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

STEM Safari Saturdays are designed for children in PreK-3rd grades. These family events are open to the public.

STEM Safaris last from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, but it is neither a requirement to arrive at 9:00 nor stay the entire time. Typical time needed to participate in all activity stations is 2 to 2.5 hours.

What is STEM?

STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. We focus on these areas together not only because the skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential, but also because these fields are deeply intertwined in the real world.

Have questions?
