What is STEM Education?

STEM Education is an innovative program that encourages undergraduate science, math, and computer science students to explore career opportunities in secondary education (Grades 7-12).  Through the STEM Education program students will gain valuable hands-on teaching experience, earn a four year degree in the field of mathematics, science, or computer science as well as complete the requirements to earn their teaching license.  Students who have graduated through the STEM Education program have the ability to either begin teaching in their selected field, pursue an advanced degree, or begin working in their selected fields.   The STEM Education Program is modeled after the highly successful UTeach program from the University of Texas, Austin.
