Tuesday, July 12 at 7 p.m. — QUECHEE — The Vermont Institute of Natural Science is launching a new education program through the Center for Environmental Education to enrich the Upper Valley’s classrooms with the help of our local experts and scientists. The brand new STEM Experts in the Classroom program connects classrooms in New Hampshire and Vermont with professionals and researchers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) and environmental fields. STEM Experts in the Classroom Informational Session will be held at VINS in the Classroom on Tuesday, July 12 at 7 p.m.

The Upper Valley is rich with technical and scientific knowledge and our schools are full of curious minds. Engineers, doctors, scientists and other STEM professionals are valuable resources for schools seeking to expand their STEM curriculum. VINS is developing a library of professionals who are willing to volunteer in a classroom to share their skills and interests with students.

Those who are an expert in a STEM or environmental field and interested in bringing experience and enthusiasm to a local classroom, join for an informational session at the Vermont Institute of Natural Science. There are opportunities to volunteer in schools or remotely for one or more class periods. Our team of educators and communicators will provide the tools to make the jump from the lab to the classroom and help build a relationship with the teachers who need these skills.

Vermont Institute of Natural Science is located at 6565 Woodstock Road, Quechee. For more information, visit or call 802-359-5000.
