STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) Night Out

Enjoy a fun-filled evening exploring the motivating fields of science technology engineering and math at STEM Night Out at the SEA Discovery Center!

Students in grades 4-8 explore hands-on, inquiry-based science and end the evening with a movie, guided tour of the aquarium or arts activities.

Join fellow STEM enthusiasts for an inspiring and empowering learning experience.

The goal with our STEM Night Out event is to provide a safe and empowering space to explore STEM fields and meet peers that share those interests. We will not turn away any identity.

As we continue to look for other areas to grow our academic programs, we always appreciate feedback about demographics and interests that we can better serve. Please let us know if there are other topics or demographics that you would like to see represented!

Youth program participants and staff must abide by all University regulations and program rules.
