Mission Statement

Recognizing the growing need for college graduates from the fields of science, health science, technology, engineering and mathematics, Bloomsburg University's STEM Education Center has been established to address this need through a wide range of programming focused on:

  • STEM pipeline development (K-12)
  • professional development of teachers in collaboration with regional districts
  • cutting-edge research in STEM education
  • innovative college programs based on proven pedagogies that produce graduates prepared for success in STEM fields
  • Goals:

  • Develop a Regional STEM Magnet School for high school students that becomes a nationally recognized model for partnering with regional school districts, business and industry to produce more high school graduates who are prepared for success in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
  • Provide innovative, discovery-based programming for regional elementary and middle school students that develops interest and critical-thinking skills needed for success in the STEM fields, simultaneously preparing a pipeline of STEM Magnet School students.
  • Collaborate with regional school districts to provide professional development opportunities for teachers in the STEM disciplines.
  • Develop university math and science education leaders who can attract external support for research and programming that improves math and science education at the K-12 and college level.
