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:
STEM@SVSU is partnering with MiSTEM, East Central Michigan Region 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 building who makes incredible contributions to STEM education. Districts may nominate more than one individual as a STEM Star. 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 Thursday, December 14th. Awardees and nominators will be notified via email by Monday, January 15th.
STEM@SVSU is excited to invite you to the 7th annual STEM Teacher Dinner which will be held on Tuesday, February 21st at 4:30 pm in Curtiss Hall Seminar Rooms. Please join us for an excellent keynote address by Dante Davis, Saginaw S.T.E.M. Founder, delicious dinner, STEM Star recognition, STEM door prizes, and to learn details of upcoming STEM opportunities for you and your students! RSVP's will be accepted until February 1st or when capacity is reached (whichever comes first).
We are thankful for the continued support of our sponsors that allow us to offer amazing opportunities.
