Welcome!

Through collaborations with university departments, business and industry, and schools, the Center for STEM Education translates the findings of educational research into practices that benefit students and teachers.

C-STEM administers the AP Institute and Summer Ventures in Science and Mathematics throughout June and July.

The Center is located at the corner of 4th and Cotanche Street in downtown Greenville. Please call for directions (252-328-6885).

Our Vision

The vision for the Center for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education (C-STEM) is to leverage the resources of The University of North Carolina System, in partnership with the NC Department of Public Instruction (NC DPI), community, and schools to promote quantitative and scientific literacy for all North Carolina citizens. Through collaborations with these partners C-STEM translates the findings of educational research into best practices that benefit the science and mathematics education curriculum at all levels.


Our Mission

  • Improving the quality and quantity of K-12 teachers of science and mathematics;
  •  Providing strong experiences in science and mathematics for all K-16 students while increasing the number of graduates pursuing careers in STEM disciplines;
  •  Creating a supportive environment for multidisciplinary research, evaluation, and assessment while bridging the gap between educators and STEM professionals; and
  • Encouraging community engagement that leads to increased university partnerships with school districts, business and industry, and the community.

ECU Awarded Grant to Enhance STEM Education
The East Carolina University College of Education was recently awarded a $599,939 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve undergraduate STEM education. Project INTERSECT (Interactive STEM Education Competence in Teaching) will address the nature and role of discipline-specific discourse in the classroom. The goal of the project is to explore how training with immersive classroom simulation activities affect the ability of ECU math and science teacher candidates use of discourse as a means of instruction. The Project INTERSECT team will use the Mursion Lab Continue reading →
