Welcome to STEM@SVSU — Science, Technology, Engineering, Math
The STEM Center at SVSU was founded in 2014 with generous support of The Dow Chemical Company. The mission of the center is to serve as a coordinated network of opportunities to link K-12, university and regional employers. Our purpose is to develop a STEM talent pipeline to meet the current and future needs of the Great Lakes Bay Area by:
- Providing professional development for STEM teachers
- Engaging STEM professionals to enhance STEM learning
- Increasing experiential learning for students at all grade levels
SVSU's mobile research lab gives K-12 students access to modern scientific research, hands-on experiments and environmental studies to stimulate their interest, knowledge and positive attitudes toward science.
Students monitor the health of the Saginaw Bay through partners such as the Bay County Health Department.
Undergraduate students can receive funding for projects, such as this prototype of a 'muck vacuum' for the Bay City State Recreation Area.
Bay City Western students build a networked structure where worms and fish will produce food for plants.
Making classes like physics and math "cool", and is a goal of the Dow Corning Foundation/SVSU STEM Community Partnership.
Seventh graders at Thompson Middle School are building a hydroponic system as a result of the Dow Corning Foundation/SVSU STEM Community Partnership.
We are thankful for the continued support of our sponsors that allow us to offer amazing opportunities.
