SciTech STEM Academy

Thanks to a generous grant from the Dunham Foundation in 2011, SciTech Hands On Museum established one of the first STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) based curriculum schools in the country. Limited to 40 very fortunate children (aged 3 to 7 years); the SciTech STEM Discovery Academy, housed in the museum, offers children exceptional tools for their future.
