Upcoming Field Trips

Thank you for interest in our upcoming STEM Read event. As you might know, Northern Illinois University has decided to suspend all on-campus events and classes for the duration of the spring semester. For the health and safety of everyone involved, STEM Read will postpone all of our spring events. We will issue full refunds to anyone who has paid and stop invoicing for anyone whose payment is in process. We are working with our team and our authors to test alternative forms of delivery for some of our challenges. We are also investigating rescheduling Scythe and The Detective’s Assistant for the 2020-2021 school year.

We will keep you updated as we develop these offerings and cement new dates. As always, stemread.com has several videos, games, and lesson plans that you and your students can access for free. You can also see our latest resources, videos, and news posts at stemread.com or by following our NIU STEAM social media channels. 

Thank you for everything you’re doing to keep students reading and learning under these extraordinary circumstances. We hope that you and your students and families are staying in and staying safe. We look forward to joining together again to learn the STEM and live the book…when the real world doesn’t seem like some of our favorite YA dystopian novels.
