Thank you for visiting our STEM Team website; we are part of the DuPage County Regional Office of Education. Our goals are to encourage awareness of and engagement with STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) content, processes and careers. The events and activities hosted by our Team focus on middle school grades and include educators, students, and parents. We collaborate with schools, businesses and community organizations in the County in our quest for all to embrace STEM.
