• UH STEM Zone Saturday

Program Overview:

The UH STEM Zone Saturday is a hybrid (in-person and virtual) monthly program providing engagement in the sciences and engineering fields for 3rd–12th grade local, state, nation-wide and global students who interact with UH STEM Faculty, UH STEM Center Outreach Squad, undergraduates, industry partners, and like-minded peers. The UH STEM Center is committed to supporting students in the 3rd/5th Ward public housing communities and surrounding school districts. In the U.S., female, minority, and economically disadvantaged students are underrepresented in STEM majors and careers. Factors that influence reduced engagement in STEM:

  • Few female and minority role models
  • Little real world application found in math and science courses
  • Low student research population

Product Description:  A STEM Kit is available for a nominal cost that provides tangible materials for your student to use and explore during the program’s instruction which is led by UH Faculty, external industry partners, and UH STEM Center Outreach Squad members who are undergraduate and graduate students representing various STEM disciplines. STEM Kits provide a hands-on and minds-on experience that is crucial to ensure the level of instructional rigor is focused on real – world concepts which sets a tone of excellence and scientific achievement.  

 

STEM Kits will be available for pick up the Thursday/Friday (UH Main Campus - 3585 Cullen Blvd., Lamar Fleming Bldg.) immediately before each program date. Also, STEM Kits will be delivered Friday, the day before the program date, to the UH Sugar Land campus.

 

Price: $7.00

Optional Discount: School Bundle: $5.25

*School districts who partner with the UH STEM Center have the opportunity to receive a 25% discount on each STEM Kit.
