Registration for the DECTech Fall 2023 Session is now open!
DECtech is a Colorado School of Mines outreach program designed especially for students! Program leaders are Mines students who are both passionate about their subjects of study and sharing this passion with the next generation. Our mission is to engage students in STEM by introducing them to various subjects with an interactive, engaging, and hands-on approach!
We are willing to make accomodations if your child isn't in 3rd-10th grade. However, the curriculum is created to cater towards these age groups.

Sample activities will address different aspects of astronomy (e.g., labs to explore light and telescopes); chemistry (fuel and rocketry); space geology and hydrology (on Mars!); robotic engineering (on the Moon!); computer programming with sensor systems and robots in outer space…All students will build, test, and explore with age-appropriate hands-on labs.
