Through FourScienceVT, the partners' goal is to provide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) educational content, programs, and resources from their centers to Vermonters across the state. Offerings will include live science broadcasts on Zoom and Facebook, video content with friendly and knowledgeable educators, behind-the-scenes tours of collections, and downloadable resources for families and teachers.
