Welcome to the new NC STEM Center

The NC STEM Center was developed so parents and other caregivers, teachers, and policymakers could know about STEM in North Carolina including STEM programs and opportunities for kids and their families. It was also created with program providers in mind, providing the means for discovering new partners as well as ways to showcase the STEM opportunities that providers are offering for youth. We are pleased to announce that we have launched our updated web portal this week! Search our listings of STEM classes, workshops, camps, shows, and more happening right here in North Carolina. We hope you like the new site, its functionality, and our refreshed e-Update format. Please enjoy your revamped NC STEM e-Update. Please contact us if you have any feedback on our new look!
