See what all the excitement is about!

STEM in the Park
will feature interactive displays and activites created by area universities, community partners, and local businesses to engage children of all ages in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Join us for a family day of hands-on fun at Bowling Green State University, featuring
everything from giant bubbles to edible DNA. Families will receive take-home STEM
activities and a free lunch. You won’t want to miss it!



NWO's STEM in the Park is teaming up with Food for Thought in an effort to help squash hunger. Please bring a food item or a basic household/personal care necessity with you to STEM in the Park on September 26th. There will be a mobile pantry on site to accept your donations.
