Providing engaging, hands-on science education to students in after school child care programs.
ExplorationWorks Science Center has partnered with elementary schools in Helena, East Helena and Clancy to provide engaging, hands-on science education to students in after school child care programs. This ExWorks program, called After School STEM Out Reach (STEM Out), is free to students and their parents!
STEM Out brings an ExplorationWorks educator to SACC programs to guide children through science activities. Playing archaeology detectives, discovering nanoscience, and designing a physics experiment with LEGO are just a few examples of the fun activities STEM Out offers. Interactive lessons like these are known to create positive and lasting impressions in students, inspiring them to consider a STEM career path later in life.
