STEM Day, a PEER and WISE outreach program brings together underrepresented middle school students from the Upstate to Clemson University for an introduction to the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Students experienced a day of activities, mock classroom experiences, and tours. The department hosts these special days so that potential students from the area are familiar with Clemson, the possibility for STEM majors, and willing to consider both when filling out college applications.
Monthly, mentors from PEER and WISE travel to McCant’s and Lakeside middle schools to teach girls about STEM field careers. The department hopes we both instill a love and inspire girls to pursue STEM careers.
