Welcome

Thank you for visiting our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) website; we are part of the DuPage County Regional Office of Education. Our goals are to encourage awareness and engagement with STEM 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 DuPage on our quest for all to embrace STEM.

STEM Starters

FAKE FOTO OR FOR REAL?

Explain how this works. Are there any pieces of the table that are not necessary?

THE TRAINIG TANGLE

Put these in a logical order using clues from the context of the sentences.

ANIMALS & TECHNOLOGY

Can you think of ways technology imitates animals?

Fun for:

Educators

You can use these starters to engage students as they enter class and get seated. This type of activity is sometimes referred to as bell work, or a bell ringer.

Families

You can use these to spark an after-dinner discussion, a game night or an exploration.

STEM Nerds

Just nerd out with us.

Everyone

DuPage Middle School and Junior High Innovators,

Here’s the Challenge:

Work with a team from your school to redesign an item to make it more functional or more efficient. Make a working prototype of your redesigned item and present it in a 3-minute video in the form of a Public Service Announcement, Commercial, or “Shark Tank” Pitch!

Register your team by February 10th.  


Schools

Wesley Elementary, in Addison, hosts Tech or Treat for their families in October. We’ve been thrilled to join in on the fun for the past two years. Enjoy some photos from this year’s Marble Run Challenge.
