STEM education is vitally important in today’s market. To highlight its importance, Truett McConnell University (TMU) will host STEM Day on Thursday, October 11, beginning at 10:30 a.m.

STEM Day, sponsored by the Pilgram Marpeck School of STEM and the office of Undergraduate Admissions, is a one-day event providing prospective students a preview of the campus and state-of the-art laboratories as well as opportunities to engage with STEM professors and experience a typical day in the life of a STEM student at TMU.

STEM Day activities include exercise science simulations, biology lab experiments, and an opportunity to feel first-hand a shocking simulation and explore the beauty of muscle physiology!

The School of STEM was created to improve education, career opportunities, and literacy in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics from a Christian worldview. TMU develops programs that challenge and advance learning and teaching in STEM fields and provides educational opportunities and training for the next generation of STEM educators and professionals.

“Our hope for STEM Day this year,” said Dean and Professor of Physiology Dr. Robert S. Bowen, “is to introduce our unique and creative Pilgram Marpeck School of STEM by highlighting our fascinating faculty, our incredible resources, and the vast opportunities to excel in biology, pre-health sciences, and exercise science through hands-on experiences that will mold our future students into effective scholars and superb professionals.”

STEM Day is free and open to teachers and their classes, as well as individual and homeschool students.
