The Center for STEM Education
The Center for STEM Education (i2STEMed) at Georgia Southern University supports and engages in STEM teaching and learning through both formal and informal educational settings by collaborations with K-12 schools, the university community, and local and global partners.
Focusing on rural, diverse, low socioeconomic status and under-represented populations, the Center is committed to K-12 students, parents and supporters to provide STEM education opportunities. i2STEMed interacts with students and supporters through it’s mobile STEM education unit, Science To-Go, as well as participation in school STEM nights, science fairs and events. The Center works with teachers and academic professionals to enhance classroom, camp and/or organizational STEM curriculum and innovative practices. offers a wide variety of consumable and non-consumable materials for use in the classroom. For an example, our i2STEMed School Outreach program offers a wide variety of consumable and non-consumable materials for use in the classroom. Our inventory also includes social studies kits with activities, materials, and supplies based on topics which align to the Georgia Standards of Excellence.
In efforts to serve students, i2STEMed also partners with fellow Georgia Southern faculty on grant proposals and projects that will benefit K-20 populations and the advancement of STEM education.
i2STEMed is an educational outreach center for the University’s College of Education (COE). The Center’s administrative office is housed in the COE’s classroom building, room 3161, on the Statesboro Campus.
The Center has always been known as our acronym i2STEMe. As we encourage our community to be citizen scientists and see the STEM opportunities around them, we hope that you, too, will be a STEM educator! Therefore, i2STEMed, we hope will resound as a proclamation that, “I, too, do STEM education!”
