STEM Events at Foxcroft School

Stimulating opportunities for hands-on learning — for all ages!

Engaging the Community

Foxcroft's STEM program is tailored to our student's interests and learning styles. But did you know we also host events open to the community? Whether solving the mystery of who stole Suzie Foxcroft's identity at The STEM Challenge or learning computer programming in an innovative, hands-on way, eager participants have benefitted from the expertise within our STEM Department and the partnerships we have formed with outside organizations.
