STEM Center Innovation Challenges kicks off
Some 300 students and teachers from Lowcountry schools will participate in the S.C. STEM Innovation Expo Kickoff on Nov. 14 for training in video game design, website design, engineering design process and more. The event, which is being hosted by The Citadel STEM Center for Excellence, will take place at 9 a.m. in the ITT Tech building at 2431 W. Aviation Avenue in North Charleston.
The kickoff is to prepare students for the STEM Innovation Expo challenge in April 2012. The 2012 expo will be the culminating event for students who have engaged in one of four STEM challenges during the academic year, giving them the chance to showcase their projects which will be evaluated by a panel of judges.
“The purpose of the kickoff is to generate excitement among the students participating in the expo and give them the tools they will need to complete in the challenge successfully,” said Carolyn Kelley, director of The STEM Center.
The kickoff will be divided into three groups—K-5, middle school and high school. For a complete details, go to:

The STEM Center for Excellence is a byproduct The Citadel 2009 BluePrint, a strategic plan that makes education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics a priority at the college.
