Regional STEM Lab


What are some new programs upstairs in the STEM Lab that we should keep a lookout for?


Coding Programs- Unleashing the Power of Technology

One of the STEM Lab's programming highlights is its seasonal Coding Club along with a week-long coding camp where aspiring young programmers can delve into the exciting world of computer science. Participants will learn the fundamentals of coding while unleashing their creativity to develop codes through VEX IQ bots.

STEM Cafe- Where STEM Meets Socialization

Designed specifically for teens and preteens in middle and high school, this recurring event every fourth Friday, offers a unique blend of STEM exploration and socialization while munching on some delicious pizza! From engaging discussions on current scientific topics to interactive demonstrations and DIY experiments, STEM Cafe provides a vibrant space where young adults can connect with peers and professionals who share their passion for STEM. 

Innovative Educational Programming- Central to the STEM Lab's mission is its commitment to providing engaging and educational programming for small and large groups. From scouts to school groups, the lab offers diverse lessons designed to captivate and inspire creativity. Through interactive demonstrations and guided experiments, students explore the wonders of science and develop critical thinking skills that will serve them in the future. 

Seasonal Adult Programming- Cultivating Lifelong Learning

While Port Discover's STEM Lab primarily caters to children and teens, the center also recognizes the importance of engaging adults in STEAM. In line with this vision, Port Discover offers seasonal adult programming to cultivate lifelong learning.

More to Come- Port Discover will be undergoing a considerable transformation downstairs this year. While that will occur, we hope to add more activities, including astronomy nights, conservation programs, 3D printing, culinary, finance, arts, and drone programming.
