STEM at Home

We launched our STEM at Home programming in May of 2020 to help tighten the learning gap brought about by COVID-19. This program hosted local experts and provided engaging and interactive science lessons for K-5 students and career exploration episodes for middle and high school students in our community.

The Newton's Road LIVE STEM at Home events were recorded and are now available. Many thanks to Traverse Area Community Media, our STEAM / Maker Alliance partners and several local businesses and education partners for supporting this first-time offering!
