STEM Pipeline Blog / March 10, 2020
Greetings from STEM@SVSU!
As we look forward to warmer weather, STEM@SVSU is excited to offer many opportunities designed to develop a STEM-talent pipeline to meet the current and future needs of the Great Lakes Bay Region; we strive to do this by providing professional development for STEM teachers, engaging STEM professionals to enhance STEM learning, and increasing experiential learning for students at all grade levels.
This year brings multiple opportunities for students, teachers, and professionals to engage in exciting STEM programs on our campus. Here is just a sample of our summer offerings:
- Camp Infinity (middle, and high school) introduces girls, grades 5th – 12th, to computer and internet technologies through hands-on activities.
- Our STEM Scholars Network High School Camps are free one-week camps that incorporate problem-based learning in various STEM subjects.
- The Summer STEM Opportunities Camp reinforces fundamental math concepts through engaging, hands-on activities, specifically for middle school students in Saginaw City and Bay City Public Schools.
- SMEK Jr. And Sr. Camps, (Science and Mathematics Extravaganza for Kids), engage 2nd – 8th grade students in fun-filled STEM activities centered around the scientific method and the engineering design process.
- The Dow Corning Foundation-SVSU-Community STEM Partnership is a professional development program that encourages teachers to examine their students’ attitudes towards STEM and use program funds to enhance STEM learning in their classrooms.
- The Dow Science and Sustainability Education Center Summer Research Experience is a unique paid research internship that promotes collaboration between high school students, teachers, SVSU students and SVSU faculty mentors while conducting research on the Saginaw Bay Watershed.
We can’t wait to see you this summer!
