In recent years, the United States has fallen far behind other developed nations in its preparation of students for careers in science, math and technology (ranking 15th in math and 9th in science worldwide), as well as failing to provide basic science literacy to its citizens. In response to this desperate need for improving STEM education, the center develops and delivers:

  • professional development experiences for K-12 teachers in proven techniques of integrated STEM instruction
  • summer, after-school and one day programs for K-12 students that increase their exposure and interest in STEM subjects and careers
  • programs for K-12 parents, counselors, administrators and community partners that support students in their STEM course college preparation and career

The Bristol-Myers Squibb Center for Science Teaching and Learning is currently offering the following activities:
