I am happy to announce the Great Lakes Bay Region Stem Pipeline has created a STEM passport scavenger hunt that will run from May 10th - June 18th. Students and families will need to download the STEM Passport App in order to participate. The STEM-based scavenger hunt is aimed at getting families and kids engaged in local out-of-school time learning activities. There will be 26 locations to visit in the region.
