Thank you for visiting our STEM Team website; we are part of the DuPage County Regional Office of Education. Our goals are to encourage awareness of and engagement with STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) content, processes and careers. The events and activities hosted by our Team focus on middle school grades and include educators, students, and parents. We collaborate with schools, businesses and community organizations in the County in our quest for all to embrace STEM.

Facts about Coronavirus disease outbreak, COVID‑19

We are living in an unusual time, to put it mildly, and it’s as important as ever to obtain factual information. As always, read from multiple sources and search for respected authorities. Look for consensus among scientists and health practitioners, and be skeptical of information from organizations that are likely to have a bias, or a political agenda.
Here are some organizations we are using for information:

Johns Hopkins University of Medicine Corona Virus Resource Center

World Health Organization

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Illinois Department of Public Health

DuPage County Health Department

University of Chicago Hospital COVID‑19 Info
