Everyone has a story, tell us yours!
Join Us in Celebrating SC STEM Education Month
STEM Education Month is a statewide event inviting STEM stakeholders - students, k-12, higher education, out of school learning, business/industry, and government - to celebrate, explore and discover why a quality STEM education is vital to the future of South Carolina!
Stories in STEM
The 2023 theme of STEM Education Month, “Stories in STEM”, was chosen to promote diversity, agency, and equity in STEM. Every student, teacher, professional, and leader in STEM has a voice and a story- we want to hear yours! During STEM Education Month, we will highlight stories in STEM from across South Carolina, while also telling our own story. STEM is made possible because of the thousands of individual stories that create something greater. What’s your story?
Want to share your STEM story? Send a brief paragraph about how you got started in STEM, why STEM is important to you, what your journey in STEM has looked like, or what STEM has brought to your life to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our STEM Action Partner Team is a collaborative group of STEM-stakeholders who meet monthly to network and plan for STEM Education Month. We invite you to join the discussion!
