Professional Learning for Educators and Student Programs


We believe Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics are all creative, hands-on, and exciting subjects. Being curious about our world, and worlds beyond, is central to the human experience. It is our hope that all people have the chance to celebrate this basic human instinct and be able to understand and influence the world around them.

Fall Weekend College for Kids will take place on the following Saturdays:
September 26, October 10, November 21, 2015.
Online registration available

Upper Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative


The Seaborg Center has formed a partnership with the Upper Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative that supports a network of area teachers to begin projects that will create stewards of our community. This state-wide initiative supports project-based and place-based education for our students and will have significant impact for everyone involved.
