Backyard + Town + State = Where's Your STEM?
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!
WHERE'S YOUR STEM?
Our theme, Where's Your STEM?, was chosen to reinforce the idea that STEM exists in your neighborhood, in your backyard, and all throughout South Carolina. STEM is not just science or math; STEM includes formal and informal learning in schools, the community, the workplace and requires skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, cooperation, and adaptability. During our STEM Education Month, we'll highlight STEM experiences across the state and in diverse settings. So, tell us – Where's Your STEM?
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!
