What is STEM?
STEM has become a common acronym to represent the fields of 

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. 

This webpage is the central location for information on these programs.  The contributions of our faculty, staff, students, and community partners are critical for the continued success of these programs.  If you are interested in participating in an event or you are a potential community partner with an idea for a new event, please contact Dr. Kim Pause Tucker, via email or phone (443-334-2071). The faculty of Stevenson University’s School of the Sciences have made it a priority to contribute to STEM education at all levels.  We consider it important to engage K-12 students, teachers, Stevenson students, and our community in enhancing education in these fields. The goals of Stevenson University’s STEM Initiatives are not only to encourage students to pursue careers in these challenging fields, but also to help transform K-12 education by training teachers in inquiry-based curricula.
