This new program builds on the Museum’s legacy Science Minors and Achievers program, and we are excited to welcome teens back to Saturday programming.
In the 12-week session, 9th and 10th grade youth will do hands-on group activities, meet STEM professionals, learn presentation and career-based skills. The session ends with a STEM-focused small-scale exhibit, developed as a team, that teens will present to friends, family and guests. Participants will each build on skills and learn something new by self-assigning into a museum "department" that will be responsible for a unique role in the exhibit development—including areas like marketing, facilitation and artifact collections.
We will be expanding to include 11th and 12th graders in fall 2023.
