Tuskegee University, one of the 16 historically Black colleges and universities with ABET-accredited engineering schools, recently partnered with local educators to promote the study of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) among high school students in the area.

The day-long event, known as Tuskegee University STEMmED Day, featured hands-on activities and demonstrations in math, biology, physics, chemistry, engineering, and agriculture. Panel discussions on careers in STEM were also conducted.

High school students from various schools including Macon County, Notasulga, Bullock County, Montgomery Public Schools, Ramsey High School in Birmingham, Auburn, and Loachapoka attended the event.

The initiative was supported by several organizations including NASA Minority University Research and Education Projects Precollege Summer Institutes, the National Science Foundation’s S-STEM grant for Promoting Excellence, Retention, and Scholarship in STEM (PERSIST), Amazon Inc., the U.S. Department of Defense, and Tuskegee University’s Career Services and Office of Admissions.

Dr. Courtney Griffin, Tuskegee University’s director of admissions, expressed her satisfaction with the event, saying “This was an exceptional opportunity for high school students and their parents to receive a full view of the opportunities presented by choosing to study different areas of STEM.”

Dr. Lecia Robinson, an assistant professor of biology, also expressed her hope that the partnership will leave a lasting impression on the students.

“Tuskegee University is known for its exceptional STEM programs, and exposing these students at a young age helped provide options that were not overwhelming. I looked forward to watching these young students challenge themselves in this way,” she said.
