The STEM Passport is HERE!

You and your child can explore STEM Passport locations and events in the Great Lakes Bay Region (GLBR) by accessing our STEM calendar of events or our partner websites in the list below. The GLBR is home to a variety of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) destinations and programs. We are sharing this information because afterschool programs help children learn, grow, discover who they are and what they love to do, and ultimately realize their full potential. Afterschool programs enhance a child’s foundational skills, like communication, teamwork, and problem solving, and prepare them for the jobs of tomorrow. Research shows that this added participation in afterschool programs sparks interest in school so students attend school more often, get better grades, and are more likely to graduate.

The Great Lakes Bay Region STEM Passport compiles information for hands-on, dynamic STEM organizations in the community. Now locating current STEM-based activities and events in the region is easy!

Locate STEM Destinations
