STEM-by-the-Hour Classroom Programs

At Carnegie Museums, we are committed to the safety of our staff, visitors, and outreach program participants. Please review our In-Person Outreach Program Safety Standards for information about booking a Science on the Road program at your location.

We bring science to your classroom!

Students love the fun, hands-on activities. Educators love the minds-on learning loaded with eligible content! STEM-by-the-Hour presentations allow you to expand on important themes in your curriculum right in the classroom!

Each program accommodates up to 30 students and can be adapted to fit a 45-minute class period.

New this year! Several STEM-by-the-Hour offerings are available for live virtual programming! See program listings below for more details.

All programs will be held virtually until June 1, 2021. After that time, for the safety of our program participants and staff members, in-person STEM-by-the-Hour programs must be held outside and participants will be required to wear masks and social distance.
