How do I register my child for the next F.E.M.M.E.S. event?
Registration will open up 4-6 weeks before an event is scheduled to take place. Once registration opens up, you will be able to download registration forms or register online. We also send out forms to schools that we have established relationships with.
My child has attended a capstone event in the past; will I automatically be able to register my child again?
We love that our events get participants so excited about STEM, that they want to come back! We often have students come to multiple capstones; however, we do not contact previous attendees to register again. This is because the mission of F.E.M.M.E.S. is to provide STEM exposure to students who normally would not have such an opportunity. This means trying to reach as many DIFFERENT students and as many DIFFERENT schools as possible, particularly in underserved areas.
Does F.E.M.M.E.S. hold events outside of Explore, Connect, and Advance?
Yes! We can run activities at various local events. To inquire about F.E.M.M.E.S. coming to your event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am not currently a student at the University of Michigan, can I still volunteer with F.E.M.M.E.S.?
YES! If you are 18+ years of age, we welcome you to volunteer with us. To get more info on how to volunteer with F.E.M.M.E.S., please contact us at: email@example.com.

What is the age limit for participating in an event?
