STEM Activities
These activities are meant to engage students in hands-on activities that we can bring to your classroom allowing students to explore STEM concepts. STEM ambassadors can present these activities for you and your students in your classroom or can provide you with the necessary information to help you present the materials yourself. Activities could include spaghetti tower challenges, chess problems related to mathematics, STEM activities that relate math and science skills to the STEM professions.​

 

Please note, some opportunities of this program may include a cost to cover mileage and/or materials.

The CMSE staff members appreciate as much advance notice as possible. We recommend booking your visit at least 1 month in advance to organize and plan a successful exploration.

Steps to plan a successful STEM Exploration:

Step One: Determine potential dates, timing, and goals for the visit. (You will need this information before step two.)

Step Two: Submit a STEM Experts Reservation Request Form by completing the form on the tab labeled reservation request. After completing the reservation request, you will receive an email outlining your submission.

Step Three: After submitting the reservation request form, allow the CMSE at least two weeks to compile and confirm necessary logistics. During these two weeks, a CMSE staff member may reach out to you to clarify some information – please be attentive to the contact information you provided on the form.

Step Four: After logistics are finalized, you will receive an email confirming your reservation. The email will also request necessary documents, such as: photo release forms, student roster(s), principal agreement (if applicable), etc. Please note: this is not an exhaustive list. These documents are traditionally requested to be submitted at least two weeks prior to the STEM Experts’ arrival.

The reservation request will be available soon. Please note, completing this request does NOT confirm your field trip.

Before submitting a request, please make sure to read through all requirements, pricing, and logistics.
