The STEAM/Maker Alliance is a group of regional organizations whose vision is that all youth in our region have access to explore and be inspired by quality STEAM/Maker opportunities. For more information about meetings and how to get involved, please email us at: 


The 2022 STEAM/Maker Passport is now live! Print off a passport or pick one up from a STEAM/Maker Alliance member.
