Welcome to STEM@SVSU — Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics

The STEM Center at SVSU was founded in 2014 with generous support of Dow (formerly 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


Nominate a STEM Star

STEM@SVSU is excited to partner with MiSTEM, East Central Michigan Region again this year to recognize STEM Stars from the Great Lakes Bay Region (Arenac, Bay, Clare, Gladwin, Gratiot, Isabella, Midland, Saginaw counties). A STEM Star may be a K-12 classroom teacher, Robotics Coach, STEM Coordinator, or someone else in your district/ISD who makes incredible contributions to STEM education. A district may nominate more than one individual; however, priority will be given to nominees who have not been previous recipients of the award. All nominations will be reviewed by a committee and those selected will receive a $250 award to enhance STEM education in their classroom or program, as well as a 3D printed keepsake.

Timeline: All nominations are due by December 17th. Awardees (and nominators) will be notified via email by January 14th.

Mobile Research Lab

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.


We are thankful for the continued support of our sponsors that allow us to offer amazing opportunities.
