North Carolina's online place for STEM

The NC STEM Center serves as an online portal for STEM resources and activities in North Carolina. Visitors to the site are able to peruse and access various content; registered users are able to access even more such as information related to grant opportunities, events, and job opportunities. Additionally, a registered user may share STEM activities for greater awareness. Do you have a program doing great work to promote STEM education in North Carolina? Share it through the NC STEM Center! Based on demand and recent requests made by you, we are looking to compile a comprehensive listing of summer camps throughout the state in the coming weeks and curate those into one, easily digestible  exchange. If you have a summer camp or know of one that might be of interest to others (virtual or in-person), please provide this information through the site or contact us directly. And, through our partnership with The Connectory, items listed on NC STEM Center also are sent into a national database for possible inclusion. Click here to get started and let's make it a great summer for STEM in North Carolina! Please enjoy your e-Update!
