STEM with DCM

Spark curiosity and promote critical thinking through hands-on discovery!

STEM with DCM labs are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards. Students will have fun while making big discoveries about Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Art.

 

Each 45–60 minute lab is led by an experienced DCM educator, with in-person and virtual options available. Students are empowered to be the primary drivers of their own learning – by building, making, engineering, and experimenting their way through engaging STEM challenges.

Create A Creature

Grades K – 3. Students will use their knowledge of animal adaptations to imagine, design, and create a creature with unique characteristics that will help the creature survive – specific considerations must include how and what the creature eats, how it moves, and where it lives.

Sound All Around

Grades 1 – 4. If we could see sound, what would it look like? What are sound waves and where do they come from? Conduct hands-on experiments that resonate with these questions, make a sound sandwich, and play a song together to learn more about how sound behaves!
