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.
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 also have classes at MCC@DoSpace and NorthStar.
Prairie STEM helps support the Nebraska Robotics Expo by providing student incentives, a hands-on booth, and help coordinate volunteers. The 2017 event had 96 teams from 26 schools and 350 students competing in STEAM critical thinking and teamwork challenges.

"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!"
