Exploring Science Technology Engineering and Math

K-12 STEM Outreach

STEM Day

STEM Day is hosted at the University of Central Florida each spring and fall. Students and teachers are invited to come explore the exciting fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through demonstrations, tours and exhibits, designed and led by our own faculty and students. STEM Day is a FREE event for all ages with a wide variety of engaging activities designed for K-12 students.

Florida Engineering Education Conference (FEEC):

The future of the State of Florida is dependent on a strong engineering workforce to maintain and sustain innovation led, economic growth. We must build on the existing infrastructure (programs that work) to increase the number and diversity of young students that select engineering as a career and enroll in an engineering program of study at a Florida post-secondary institution. FEEC is an annual conference bringing together K-12 educators and STEM industry professionals to determine what is happening in Florida regarding pre-college engineering education, to showcase successful programs and share the information with formal and informal STEM teachers.

STEM Summer Programs:

The University of Central Florida offers a variety of opportunities for middle and high school students to create memorable experiences in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. During the summer, UCF hosts several one-week and multi-week camps to engage students in hands-on learning. The camps range from exploring introductory concepts in the STEM fields to developing in-depth knowledge in specific STEM areas. Learn more about the individual programs here. Questions can be directed to STEM@ucf.edu.

SECME

SECME is a strategic alliance partnering schools, universities, industry, and government to renew and strengthen the professional capacity of K-12 educators, motivate and mentor students, and empower parents and communities so that all young people will learn and achieve at higher levels. SECME’s mission is to increase the pool of historically under represented, under-served, and differently-abled students who will be prepared to enter and complete post-secondary studies in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology, thus creating a diverse and globally competitive workforce. UCF iSTEM is a proud sponsor and host for the SECME Regional Competition. Visit http://istem.cecs.ucf.edu/secme/ to learn more.
