2021 Virtual Programs

Registration open for 2021!

Memorial Engineering Outreach is excited to announce it will be continuing the virtual programs created last year. There is even a new addition!  The following initiatives incorporate online/virtually led components along with independent learning opportunities. 

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. This program is FREE!

  • Starting Monday, July 5 and running to the week of August 23, 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.
