Alabama STEM Week is hosted by the NSF EPSCoR Project, CPU2AL. Our goal is to provide opportunities for families in Alabama to tour local science museums. We will provide groups of up to 5 tickets to be used at one of the museums listed below from July 10 - 15, 2022 contingent on the operating hours of the museum. There must be at least one chaperone 19 years old or older with each group.


We are no longer offering tickets. To view the photo album from the 2022 Alabama STEM Week, visit this link.
