Mobile STEM Programs

September - June

Middle and High Schools (Grades 5-12)



Overview: Utilizing a sprinter van equipped with interactive technology tools, web interface, and GIS mapping capabilities, the DSE program travels to your school to provide FREE educational programming that makes use of the natural areas at your school. All programs are aligned to Indiana State Standards in science and mathematics and Excellence in Environmental Education - Guidelines for Learning (Pre K - 12), feature hands-on, outdoor scientific investigations, and can be individually tailored to suit your surrounding local environment, science and technology education needs, student and teacher knowledge base, and time.

The programs are conducted within the following time considerations:

Block period (80-90 min) 
Traditional class period (45-60 min)

Target Audience: 5th-12th grade students and teachers in Marion, Boone, Hamilton, Madison, Hancock, Shelby, Johnson, Morgan, and Hendricks Counties. Schools further from Indianapolis may also be visited.

Program Availability: We are currently scheduling for the Fall 2017 & Spring 2018 Programming Season.

Programs in Development: CEES staff are developing energy programs that will fully utilize the capabilities of our new sprinter van (equipped with solar panels, a wind turbine; eventually additional elements such as an energy bike and pizoelectrics will be added).
