The Center for Excellence in STEM Education is pleased to provide another offer On-Location Programming in addition to our
On-Campus Field Trips. This means a makerspace experience that comes to YOU! If you are looking for a way to integrate hands-on activities, integrate skills across subject areas, and expose students to new technology, consider an On-Location Program for the 2019-2020 school year. All programs are designed with a focus on process over product. Students will have exposure to new experiences, concepts, and materials. When students are building, a focus is placed on building drafts and prototypes.
