Dow Science & Sustainability Education Center

The Dow Science & Sustainability Education Center was funded by The Dow Chemical Company Foundation in December 2013 for the purpose of enhancing STEM education in the region at all levels. The Dow SSEC has natural connections to the Saginaw Bay Environmental Science Institute (SBESI) since both involve environmental science and sustainability research important to the Saginaw Bay Watershed. The SBESI focuses on undergraduate research, often funded through external grants and motivated by needs within the community/region. The Dow Science and Sustainability Education Center features a unique summer internship research program that promotes collaboration between high school students, teachers, SVSU students and SVSU faculty mentors. It also aims to engage the broader community with its mobile science lab, through which citizens will have opportunities to participate in scientific studies of the Saginaw Bay Watershed as well as green chemistry, biodiversity and alternate energy. 

Funding for this program has ended. We will update this site if/when future funding becomes available.

Summer Research Experience

Middle and high school STEM content teachers, high school students and SVSU undergraduate students are welcome to apply for an opportunity to participate in scientific research during the summer with SVSU faculty.

Funding for this program has ended. We will update this site if/when future funding becomes available.
