# STEM Outreach Programs

## Programs centering around Science, Technology, Engineering and Math

**STEM Outreach Programs**

The Directorship of ESU's STEM outreach programs listed below is housed in the Department of Mathematics and Economics. STEM faculty from the Departments of Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Nursing contribute the time and effort it takes to put on such programs along with the Mathematics and Economics faculty. Each program is held at a different time of year and focuses on a different subset of students, but all of them have the same primary goal: to excite and enhance students' minds in the subjects of mathematics and science.

## Master-IT!

A week-long, residential summer program held every year in June for 7th and 8th grade girls.

## Math + Science Family Night

A program for Emporia Middle school students and their parents organized by ESU math and science majors.

## Sonia Kovalevsky Mathematics Day

Young women in their junior year of high school and their mathematics teachers come to ESU to celebrate their accomplishments in mathematics.

## Inspired by Math

Inspired By Math is a math enrichment, STEM outreach program for 6th-8th grade students in the Emporia area. The program consists of two components for students to participate in during the year.
