The program is a joint endeavor between COA’s Mathematics and Engineering department and Natural Sciences department, designed to engage children and young adults in a variety of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) projects.

The first virtual STEM event for 2021 – “Snowball Catapult” – will be held Thursday, January 14 at 5:30 p.m. Science kits may be picked up at any of COA’s four campus locations during the week of the event. A recording of the event will be made available on the website for those unable to join live.
