Family Events

Date: Each Wednesday, February 3 - April 14 2021 
Cost: $25 per family 

Please join CMU faculty members as they share their passion for STEM with you through an engaging activity! This virtual series will offer a new host/activity each week. Materials will be provided for the activities which require them. 

Featured faculty includes representatives from the following CMU departments: engineering, computer science, dance, art, teacher education, mathematics, and fashion merchandising and design.   

All STEM activities will feature active participation in an activity that features one or more of these skills: making, problem-solving, recognizing and applying patterns, and communication with the expected outcome of a shared experience or product. Along the way, you will learn more about:

  • STEM fields
  •  faculty interests
  •  research labs, and campus facilities 
  • a diverse sampling of STEM topics and disciplines
Activity and topics are geared towards 4th - 9th grade students and families. 

For a more detailed look at each week, check out this slide deck.
