The STEM Center at SIUE is dedicated to building a community of researchers and educators who together innovate ways to engage students and the public in STEM.

Our team of researchers and content creators works to define best practices in STEM initiatives. From organizing and judging Science Fairs to providing innovative curriculum advancing computational thinking, we engage communities to broaden STEM teaching and learning in southwest Illinois. Our research is as diverse as our activities! From cognitive science to computer usability, we strive to understand how people best learn and teach STEM in formal and informal settings. Visit our Research and Outreach pages for a complete list of our current activities. Support the STEM Center with a donation. Please take the time to designate that the donation is for the STEM Center.
