STEM Conservatory

Students explore STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activities during hands-on workshops, events and internships.

STEM Conservatory events are open to learners in grades K-12 where they participate in projects modified for their grade levels.

Kurt Amen, STEM Conservatory Manager, said STEM Conservatory events are about presenting a real-world problem to the learners and then giving them the tools to figure out their own solutions.

The activities allow learners to be innovative thinkers and curious experimenters, while developing communication and teamwork skills. They also participate in investigative processes and explore scientific and technological advances.

Experts and professionals in various fields share their experiences and allow students the opportunity to hear from someone who works in their region who is actively involved in a career that may be of interest to them.

Students can participate in hands-on workshops by exploring:

  • Engineering
  • Career-readiness
  • Technology
  • Astronomy
  • 3-D Printing and Modeling
  • Neuroscience
  • Agriculture
