STEM SENC (Southeastern North Carolina) is a regional effort in surrounding counties to bring together individuals, organizations, schools, institutions, and businesses for the purpose of supporting STEM learning in southeastern North Carolina. 


STEM SENC is proud to announce our new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leaders

[pictured in photo, left to right] [not pictured] Leaders will engage in activities related to diversifying the educator workforce, and identify and share opportunities to develop and support STEM educators of color with the STEM SENC steering committee, STEM SENC partners, and regional STEM educators.
This effort is generously sponsored by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund and is being conducted in response to the challenge to increase the diversity of the educator workforce articulated by the North Carolina Developing a Representative and Inclusive Vision for Education (DRIVE) Task Force. It aligns with the Professional Development System Educators of Color network at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.

2021 PBL Workshop

The North Carolina Science Leadership Association (NCSLA) partnered with the Center of Excellence for Research, Teaching and Learning (CERTL) at the Wake Forest School of Medicine to provide two 3-day workshops this summer. Both workshops were designed to provide K-12 teachers with inquiry-based lessons in Problem-Based Learning that integrate science, math, language arts and other areas of the curriculum.

STEM SENC and the UNCW Watson College of Education’s Center for Education in STEM (CESTEM) and STEM Learning Cooperative provided support for the workshop held at UNCW on June 21-23. Click here to read an article about the workshop in the Watson Chronicle.
