Join us on October 7, 2023 for our next Saturday Workshop!

The Fall 2023 GROW Saturday Workshop will be held on October 7, 2023 with the theme "K-State Investigates! Debunking Myths and Misconceptions in STEM." At the workshop, middle school students can become "mythbusters" and explore the world of STEM by debunking myths and exploring scientific misconceptions.
