Boys in STEM

 Get hands-on with one of our Boys In STEM Sundays!

Whitaker Center offers STEM Sunday workshops for boys in grades 4 - 8 that feature design challenges and foster creative thinking. Participants will enjoy an afternoon of discovery with our Education staff as they lead the group in activities that help boys connect with real-world applications of science, technology, engineering and math.

Check out our Girls in STEM programs, too!

FALL 2018 Workshop Topic: Arcade Games

Participants will brainstorm, design, build, and improve their own cardboard arcade game that they will be able to take home at the end of the workshop. They will use a wide variety of materials to create and tweak their games, and they can collaborate with others while they build. This design challenge focuses on all the key elements of STEM learning.
