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
