Science Clubs & Events

  • Each year School District U-46 partners with local libraries to host STEM Expo Kick-Off events. These events are opportunities to engage, excite, and inform students about the U-46 STEM Expo.

    This year we are changing things up!!

    All STEM Expo Kick-Off events will be held virtually via Zoom Webinar, Facebook, Twitter, or Youtube from 6 to 7 p.m. every Wednesday in November. Each participating partner will provide the attendees with a virtual demonstration using one or several of the NGSS Crosscutting concepts.
