Our Mission

STEM outreach at MSOE creates and supports inclusive, meaningful experiences for all students to explore the possibilities of their future, regardless of where their post-high school journey may take them.

About the Center

The We Energies STEM Center at MSOE, located at 1444 N. Water St., is Milwaukee’s premier STEM destination for K-12 students. Created in partnership with We Energies, Rockwell Automation, American Family Insurance, Scott & Linda Haag, and Northwestern Mutual, the STEM Center enables students from any school—public, private, charter and homeschool—to have access to hands-on, one-of-a-kind STEM experiences.

The 10,000-square-foot STEM Center features a flexible technology studio, design and development lab, machine tooling area, and a FIRST Robotics playing field for teams to practice on a regulation field before they compete.

Tools, resources, mentors and inclusive programming offer endless opportunities for Milwaukee’s youth to explore, create and get hooked on STEM.
