STEM DuPage EMPOWERS
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.
OFF FOR THE SUMMER
See you in August. Meanwhile, check out our Archive of Starters.
Make a sketch for a piece of playground equipment, and share your idea.
Maple seeds fall from their mother tree in sort of a whirlybird motion. Why is that a good adaptation for species survival?
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.
You can use these to spark an after-dinner discussion, a game night or an exploration.
Just nerd out with us.
Click “Get Starter” button to see the full challenge, from there you’ll scroll to a second slide to see the solution. Check back weekly to see new Starters.
The Third Annual Solutions Showcase for DuPage Middle School and Junior High Innovators has concluded and the videos are in! Thirty-six teams, with a total of 147 students, entered from four schools. The challenge was to improve an existing item. Our innovators came up with fantastic ideas; we share seven of their videos here. Congratulations to our imaginative participants and their teachers.
