This Resource Bank is focused on Maine-based opportunities for young people ages 10-18. These programs, events, and activities are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to ways to explore STEM!
There are several excellent online resources that catalog do-it-yourself and online activites, so rather than attempting to duplicate them, we’re just sharing the links here.
- Khan Academy offers a plethora of videos on math, science, and more, along with a really cool badge system of awards to make learning as fun as any game.
- How to Smile is a great place to find scienc and math activities to anywhere at any time.
- Spacehack is a directory of ways to participate in space exploration.
- Zooniverse, from the Citizens Science Alliance, is a directory of ways to do real science online.
- ScienceBuddies.org offers connections from plans for science fair projects to an “Ask an Expert” section for science questions.
- The Citizen Science page at Scientific American lists great projects that can be done as individuals or groups, and their “Bring Science Home” section lists activities to do at home with 6-to-12-year-olds.
Explore these resources, and always feel free to contact the Reach Center if you have questions or suggestions for us.
