At Northeast Ohio’s STEM HQ, we're committed to delivering fun-filled STEM experiences, both here at the Science Center and virtually to anywhere in the world! Each month this year we’re focusing on a different STEM theme with a series of demonstrations of fantastic projects and experiments you can do in your home! Explore chemical and physical reactions, complete engineering design challenges, see behind the scenes videos, and more! We know the importance of shared family time that supports fun learning experiences, and are committed to providing opportunities for STEM learning for the entire community, whether families are ready to return to the museum itself, or via virtual options.
