Prairie STEM is passionate about science, technology, engineering and math learning. It provides experiential opportunities for students and teachers kindergarten through 12th grade. We can be found in school settings as well as community endeavors empowering students to shape their future.
STEAM in education, professional development and industry partners.
You can find Prairie STEM networking in the community. With support from our "Have Robot, will Travel" program, we have presented learning sessions at Tech Savvy, Nebraska Sci-Fest, and participated in elementary STEM Nights. We have facilitated industry problem-solving contests, worked on Professional Development with teachers, and provided summer school/camp opportunities for Omaha youth. We also have classes at three Omaha Elementary Schools and MCC@DoSpace.
In February of each year, Prairie STEM helps to support the Nebraska Robotics Expo by providing student incentives, a hands-on booth, and help to coordinate volunteers.

"One of my behaviorally challenged children intentionally failed her reading test. Today as they were doing their sight words activity with the CEENBoTs she has read each word correctly. I also assessed two other students during this activity. Using the CEENBoTs will allow me to assess students in ways I wouldn't typically do - I think this is great!"
