Helpful Tips to Get You Started

  • Collect your information. How many students, teachers, and chaperones will be visiting? What is the best way to contact you? When would you like to visit?
  • Registration opens May 15th, 2017 and closes two weeks prior to the STEM Day.
  • Do you have enough adults accompanying your group? Each group must be accompanied by an adult chaperone or teacher at all times. Grade 2: 1 adult per 5 students is required. Grade 4: 1 adult per 8 students is required.
