Parents of school-age children support interest in mathematics by encouraging their children to become involved in the Math Fair, compete in MathCounts, or participate in the Math Contest. The Summer Science Camp hosted by the department provides activities in science, and to a lesser degree mathematics, for rising second through eighth graders. Area teachers can be involved by participating in professional development delivered by the MSITE department faculty, the Center for STEM Education, or the Department of Public Instruction. Teachers also are invaluable by mentoring students during their field placements or internships. If you would like to be involved in any way and need information about any of the MSITE Department activities, how to host a field placement student, etc., please contact our Director of Students using the information below. For information about the Center for STEM Education, please see the contact information for it.
The Center for STEM Education (C-STEM) facilitates many of the outreach programs for the MSITE department. The Center For STEM Education is located near the ECU campus at at the corner of 4th and Cotanche Street in downtown Greenville.
The vision for the Center For STEM Education 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.
