In collaboration with Museum staff, students from neighboring high schools volunteer to develop play-based science programs for our visitors. These "Green Teens" are trained by our STEM Initiatives Program Director to share the importance of the natural world and promote environmental advocacy through interactive education programs we call "STEM Explorers." Explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Math through fun, exploratory projects. See our calendar for upcoming events.

Below is an archive of some past projects for more STEM inspiration:
