Hands-On STEM is designed specifically for our younger learners in Kindergarten through 2nd. In cooperation with: Central Rivers AEA Early Childhood, Central Rivers AEA Science, Central Rivers AEA STEM, Central Rivers AEA TAG, and Regents Center for Early Developmental Education

Due to Covid concerns and the targeted student population for this event being largely unvaccinated due to their young age, we are canceling this event for the 2022 year. We hope to be able to bring another event forward for these students in a future year!
