STEM Initiatives at Stevenson

  • Building Community Through STEM Outreach

    Supporting STEM education through work with students, teachers, and other educational groups.

The Stevenson University School of the Sciences has made it a priority to support education at all levels in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The programs listed below demonstrate our commitment to STEM outreach and showcase the goals of Stevenson University to not only encourage students to pursue careers in these challenging fields, but also to help transform K-12 education by training teachers in inquiry-based curricula.

If you are interested in participating in an event or you are a potential community partner with an idea for a new event, please contact Kim Pause Tucker at STEM@stevenson.edu

Reef Ball ProjectReef Ball Project

Stevenson University supports the Maryland Artificial Reef Initiative by producing "reef balls" that are placed in the Chesapeake Bay to help improve and restore the damaged habitat. 

Since 2010, freshmen students in the School of the Sciences make reef balls are part of their freshman seminar course.  The School of the Sciences also create additional reef balls through outreach efforts with external groups.  As of October 2014, Stevenson has made more than 286 reef balls for the Chesapeake Bay.
