Environmental STEM (eSTEM)

Environmental STEM (eSTEM) is a free after school program provided by Salem Environmental Education (SEE) and partners with local organizations such as  City of Keizer,  OSU 4-H Education, and City of Salem.

Environmental engineers focus on ways to sustain and improve the natural and man-made environment. This program provides hands-on explorations of our environment that develop designing and problem solving skills in engineering and design challenges, often using biomimicry as a guide.

The program occurs on four consecutive Tuesdays for each school. Programs include:

  • Animal Adaptations Challenge
  • Beavers: Nature’s Engineers – Design and Build a Dam Challenge
  • Solving the Pollinator Problem Challenge
  • “SOAK it UP” – Storm Water Management Challenge
