Lead an Exploratory Session

Are you a teacher, informal educator, or a STEM-H professional passionate about sharing your field with young people?

Consider leading an exploratory session!

These ninety minute sessions are offered twice and present a hands-on challenge, problem, or activity that provides an overview of a STEM-H field. Attending high school students select two sessions to attend during the event.
