2020 Virtual Programs

Registration now closed

Memorial Engineering Outreach is excited to announce some new programming for the summer of 2020. In the absence of our on-campus, in-person programs, we are introducing three new initiatives that incorporate online/virtually led components along with independent learning opportunities. And, there is no registration fee!

Program 1: Making STEMories

Let's keep learning together and have fun at the same time! This program is for families who are interested in having a weekly STEM activity or challenge emailed to them so they can solve it together.

  • Starting Monday, July 6 and running to the week of August 24, registered families will receive a weekly challenge, activity or experiment to complete together.
  • Families are encouraged to share their results and success with us throughout the summer.
  • Families will be responsible for their own materials. We will aim to keep it simple.
  • Some activities will be accompanied by a short video developed by our team.
