In early March, Temple University’s College of Science and Technology hosted the 14th annual Greater Philadelphia SeaPerch and SeaGlide Challenge.
Our very own STEM Scholars received 4th place recognition in the SeaPerch pool competition as well as 5th place recognition in the engineering design process. The G.W. Carver STEM Scholars Program is a Saturday program available for 7th and 8th grade students in the Philadelphia area who are interested in learning about science and math. The students participate in many STEM enrichment activities throughout the year to elaborate on knowledge learned in school as well as pique the interest of students about STEM related fields.
We are also proud of our STEM-UPers, who received 2nd place recognition in the SeaGlide proposals and white paper competition. STEM-UP is a STEM-focused leadership program geared towards current high school students. The program consists of four main components: mathematics, science and science literacy, real-world science, and applied STEM. STEM-UP is grounded in the belief that everyone should have access to high-quality STEM learning experiences.
