Through our STEM Clubs, students EXPLORE with professional educators that EDUCATE using the hands-on SDDC Learning Pathways curriculum to EMPOWER a confident, curious science identity that prepares young people for the future.

The STEM Discovery Summer Clubs provide an experience beyond an at-home Pinterest activity and get students ready for a possible science career!

Students must check-in and out at the front desk and must be picked up within 15 minutes of the end of club. A SDDC employee will open doors 15 minutes prior to the start of each club day and all payments must be made in full prior to the start of the club. 

Parents and guardians are responsible for dressing their students in appropriate clothing, especially for clubs that are outside, including close-toed shoes, and applying their student’s first round of sunscreen. 

If a club has fewer than 6 students registered by noon on the Friday before the club starts, it will be canceled (you will receive notification and a full refund).

Club materials are provided by the South Dakota Discovery Center out of program fees and donations. Become a supporter today!
