Service and Outreach

The Institute for Interdisciplinary STEM Education’s primary goal is to create partnerships in our communities, broaden exposure for students by offering access to STEM learning, and help teachers implement high impact practices in their classrooms.  Professional development and Outreach programs help us broaden the knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics throughout our community by enabling us to offer interactive and engaging public events like STEMfest, STEM Field Experience, STEM camps and teacher workshops.

The Institute’s goal is to support regional/national professional development for STEM teachers via online or face-to-face. We want to enhance the STEM pipeline by developing collaborative partnerships with school districts, community colleges, and universities in Southeast Georgia with the goal of improving transition between these entities and improving engagement through real-world student centered pedagogy that prepares students for STEM-related job opportunities. The Institute sponsors numerous STEM related experiences throughout the year. If you are interested in the Institute supporting your STEM event, complete our request for support document here.
