Stem Education Seminar

The Stem Education Seminar is a cross-disciplinary seminar that encompasses all of the STEM subjects – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Both students and faculty are encouraged to come! These seminars are now taking place during the normal departmental seminar time. See that page for details.
