As the school year is coming to an end, the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) wants your help to provide STEM activity plans for students that can be completed at home during the summer while you’re relaxing in the comfort of your brand new ENO Doublenest Hammock. THREE teachers will be awarded a complete summer kit for their excellent at-home activity plan.
