Naperville 203 & DuPage Children’s Museum STEM Partnership

Naperville 203 & DuPage Children’s Museum STEM Partnership

Naperville 203 and the DuPage Children’s Museum have joined forces to offer elementary students an opportunity to receive hands-on STEM experience. During this partnership, DuPage Children’s Museum facilitators designed STEM Labs for our elementary students that align with our district trimester 3 science curriculum. These NGSS-aligned STEM Labs will spark curiosity, promote critical thinking through hands-on discovery, and provide academic enrichment through a virtual learning experience. Students are empowered to be the primary drivers of their own learning by building, making, engineering, and experimenting through engaging lessons and challenges. DuPage Children’s Museum also supports PI+ by providing trimester 3 instructional support and in the area of science. Students will be posting evidence of learning through Canvas and/or SeeSaw. 


This exciting opportunity aligns with our district STEM plan by providing students authentic STEM experiences provided by expert partners in the community and promotes critical thinking and problem-solving in the remote setting. Since field trips are not an option this year, bringing the DuPage Children’s Museum to our students is the next best opportunity. We have 14 schools participating in this partnership with 6843 students engaged in the STEM experience.
