Summer Science Programs for K-12 Students



We believe Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics are all creative, hands-on, and exciting subjects.  Being curious about our world, and worlds beyond, is central to the human experience.  It is our hope that all children have the chance to celebrate this basic human instinct and be able to understand and influence the world around them.

Young Women in STEM Conference

On May 16, 2014, the Seaborg Center and American Association of University Women hosted 145 fifth and sixth grade girls from schools in Marquette and Alger Counties.  The girls chose from thirteen Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics-based sessions to engage in hands-on activities for three different choices.  It was another great day for STEM education.


NASA Staff Training

Seaborg Center staff recently received training at the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio.  While there, we toured many unique facilities involved with the space program.  We also learned about new research in micro-gravity, bio fuels, advanced engine design and many more exciting things NASA is working on.  Finally we brought back many resources and activities to support STEM education in Upper Michigan.

The Michigan Math and Science  Center Network

The Seaborg Center is one of 33 regional Centers in the Michigan Mathematics and Science Centers Network. These centers provide leadership, curriculum support, professional development, and student services to educators in local school districts.

The centers also serve as a resource clearinghouse for educational materials and information, and work to foster community involvement in the areas of mathematics and science.

The Mathematics and Science Centers Network supports the delivery of high quality mathematics and science education for the students of Michigan.

Promoting STEM education

The Seaborg Center hosts meetings with local community leaders to discuss how to increase STEM college and career readiness as a part of the Michigan STEM Partnership.  Recently approved grant funding has been made available for the Superior STEM Hub.  General grant information, Request for Proposal, and Application is now available.
