For K-12 Teachers

Due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic, STEM@SVSU will only be hosting in-person STEM programs and camps for teachers and high school students during the summer of 2021. Some middle school programs may still be held virtually.

 

Due to the evolving nature of the Covid-19 pandemic, these plans and programs are subject to change or cancellation at any time to reflect public health guidance and current conditions. Participants will be notified of any changes as soon as possible.

 

 

Teaching Resources

As a teacher, you are passionate about STEM concepts and want your students to know that these subjects are amazing! Check out our links to content-specific resources and also funding sources available to K-12 teachers. 

Dow Corning Foundation Fellows

The Dow Corning Foundation-SVSU-Community STEM Partnership program is designed to have a widespread impact to create positive perceptions, attitudes and knowledge of STEM. Participating teachers attend a summer workshop and develop an inquiry-based project for their school, with support from SVSU Faculty and Regional STEM professionals. Funding is provided by the Dow Corning Foundation; it is anticipated that the program will continue through August 2022.

Dow Science & Sustainability Education Center

2021 Applications are now available! - Deadline to apply is April 30, 2021

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. 

Hour of Code

Hour of Code is a national initiative to increase diversity in computer science as well as to introduce coding to students at a young age. SVSU offers an annual event for 4th grade classes to participate in coding activities on our campus. This is a free program; however, the school district is responsible for transportation to SVSU. Applications are available in the fall with the event occurring in December. 

SVSU Regional Mathematics & Science Center

The SVSU Regional Mathematics and Science Center provides the leadership and support for systemic change in mathematics and science education throughout the SVSU service area for preschool through higher education in both public and private institutions. 

WeCode

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this program will not be held until at least fall of 2021.

WeCode at Saginaw Valley State University is a FREE one-day weekend boot camp for beginners who would like to explore basics of coding using Sphero Programming. Our main objective is to encourage everyone to try out programming and explore the possible opportunities in the field of Computer Science. The boot camps are offered in Fall and Winter semesters.
