  Time to Spring in STEM in North Carolina

Spring is here - bringing with it a sense of renewal, warmer weather, more daylight hours, special events, and graduations as we welcome many new members into higher education and/or the workforce. In this issue we'll highlight some of the awesome things you are doing in North Carolina to help us "Spring into STEM" this year.

You can learn more about the 2019 North Carolina International Science Challenge here. And, there's still time to apply for Student STEM Enrichment Program (SSEP) grant awards now through April 16.
