Visit 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 while 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 and possibly be featured here in the e-Update! Based on demand and recent requests made by you, we are looking to compile a comprehensive listing of summer camps for 2022. If you have a summer camp or know of one that might be of interest to others (virtual or in-person), please share it through the website or contact us directly. And, through our collaboration with The Connectory, items listed on NC STEM Center also are sent into a national database for possible inclusion. Click here to get started!

Please enjoy your e-Update. Tweet us @NCSTEM with any questions or feedback.
