Focus on STEMM
© Cathy Yeulet.
STEMM activities are fun and educational. Two programs from the Center for Educational Outreach at Baylor College of Medicine funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the National Science Foundation enable learners to become disease detectives or epidemiologists. Others allow learners to investigate design and engineering, and even what it's like to be an astronaut. Select any of the guides for download to jump-start a year-long investigation or to use in after-school programs.
