Celebrating 20 years!

Welcome to Multicultural Educational Programs, Inc. (MEP), we are a 501(c) (3) organization offering phenomenal programs using hands-on science, technology, engineering and math (S.T.E.M.) activities. Our organization has two signature exhibits serving children from kindergarten through twelfth grade and programs  designed to help children and older youth discover interesting and important opportunities in S.T.E.M. focused careers. Thank-you to the Kemin Industrial Corporation and the UPS Foundation. These kits plus many other science and engineering activities can be checked out free of charge to teachers and organizations. A Kit is also free of charge at the Drake University STEM Hub in Des Moines, Iowa.
