STEM Programs

As part of the science program at Dexter Southfield, each student is able to experience firsthand the process of conducting scientific observations during class visits to the observatory. Students are able to view the Sun, Moon, planets and the stars through the telescopes in broad daylight.
Student observations of sunspots and solar flares are included in the ongoing solar research program at the Clay Center Observatory. The telescopes are also available for night-time viewing by students and their families.
After School Programs 

The School is pleased to offer a variety of after school science programs. These are extracurricular, hands-on, science clubs designed to encourage inquiry and learning in a fun, positive, educational environment. Parents wishing to volunteer need only enthusiasm and interest. The programs are run by Dexter Southfield faculty in the Clay Center each day, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Please click here for a complete list of programs.
