Truett McConnell University (TMU) will welcome prospective high school students to its third STEM Day experience on Thursday, March 14, beginning at 10:30 a.m.

STEM Day, sponsored by the Pilgram Marpeck School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in collaboration with the office of Admissions, is a one-day event providing prospective high school students a preview of the campus and its 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 an on-campus nature hike, physics demo, and an opportunity to explore muscle physiology and balance training.

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 this STEM Day experience,” 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 individuals and homeschool students. In addition to lab demonstrations and a campus tour, all guests will be treated to lunch in TMU’s dining hall.
