DiscoverSTEM2019

DiscoverSTEM is a showcase of interactive Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math activities for students in grades 7 through 12 plus adults. 

DiscoverSTEM
During the Open House, engineers, scientists and techies team up with student volunteers to showcase products, services, ideas and inventions and share their passion and knowledge for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The biennial event is held from 6:00 to 8:30pm at Acton-Boxborough Regional High School and culminates in a raffle with fantastic prizes. 

DiscoverSTEM could not take place without our dedicated student and adult volunteers. Student volunteers work side-by-side with exhibitors during the Open House. We encourage students in grades 7-12 to help out with planning, set up/cleanup, exhibits, logistics, registration or hospitality. Adults are needed to help with planning and operations. We also welcome hospitality donations. Click here to be added to our DiscoverSTEM volunteer list. ABRHS students can earn community service hours that can be applied toward Accept the Challenge.
