Center for STEM Education at UCCS

The Center for STEM Education at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, through our Partnership in Innovative Preparation for Educators and Students (PIPES) program, seeks to respond to the looming shortage of skilled science, technology, engineering and math workers and the lagging performance of students in science and math through innovative and supportive partnerships with parents, educators and professionals. Not only do we want to keep the STEM pipeline full, we also want to increase its diameter by attracting a new generation of creative, artistic and innovative students to solve the future problems related to science and math. We offer Science and Math Teacher Academies as well as Saturday and Summer camps for elementary, middle and high school students to support our research on what attracts and retains students in STEM fields. Our programs have a emphasis on inclusion of underrepresented populations such as first generation and female students.
