High School Visits to STEM

The YSU College of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics encourages you to bring your students to campus to experience a day with STEM! Gather a group of up to 30 high school juniors and/or seniors and we’ll provide the fun and the food! A typical visit runs from about 9-1:30 and includes science demonstrations with our Dean and sessions with two of our academic departments. You’ll enjoy lunch at your choice of Chick-fil-A or the KC Food Court and then tour campus before heading back home.

The 7 Days of STEM Festival will be seven whole days of celebrating science, technology, engineering, and mathematics with OH WOW! The Roger & Gloria Jones Children’s Center for Science & Technology. The festival, which will be held September 15-21, will be an exciting hands-on, critical thinking celebration that includes ‘walking on water,’ STEM student for a day, and much more. All of these activities are in preparation for Silly Science Sunday!

YSU STEM is involved with many of the different activities this year. We are offering activities for more than just children though. One of our biggest events will be a Lecture Series with Dr. Thomas Serenko, who, just this last year, was awarded Outstanding Alumnus at the STEM Awards dinner. On Tuesday, September 16, 2014 at 6:00 p.m., Dr. Serenko will be speaking on the The Utica and Point Pleasant Shale industry from a geological and historical point of view. To register for this event, please contact Jenifer Miller at 330.941.4635.
