Encourage your students to pursue a career in STEM
Calling all educators!
Apply for our STEM Fests! Our STEM Fests are designed to inspire 7th-12th graders to pursue a career in STEM. We focus on low-resourced schools in the North Carolina Triangle region as part of our mission to build a strong pipeline of STEM talent that includes all genders, races and backgrounds. Apply below.
Engage in STEM Professional Development! K-12 teachers in Wake and Durham County are invited to come to Educator ExternTrips. ExternTrips are immersion experiences at local STEM organizations during the school year. Apply below.
Join Us: STEM Fests
A STEM Fest occurs twice annually (fall and spring), and applications open early in the fall for teachers to request their student’s participation.
In FY19, 80% of students wanted to take more STEM classes after attending a Fest.
Join Us: EDUCATOR EXTERNTRIPS
Durham and Wake County teachers: Immerse yourself into an ExternTrip experience at a local STEM organization or higher education institution for half a day. Your visit may include a tour of the facility, hands-on demonstrations, and networking with employees that work for the organization.
The skills and knowledge you gain will transform your classroom teaching.
