Millard Oakley STEM Center

The Oakley STEM Center hosts several events each year that do not fit into a series like STEM Fab Fridays or STEM Safari Saturdays. These special events range from a collaboration with the Naturefest program, partnering with regional manufacturers to host a movie premier, or small day camps that we offer during school breaks. Each of these events are unique, and offer a glimpse into all the different ways STEM is apart of our lives. Events are open to the learners of all ages.
