The Center for STEM Education is now The STEM Center

By Stephen Gray
UT STEM Center

In 1965, the College of Education established the Science Education Center under the leadership of Professor Addison E. Lee. Over the years, the center expanded it's research and outreach programs, eventually becoming the Center for STEM Education. Recognized for it's ability to create networks and collaboratives of researchers and educators, the center gained a reputation as an intellectual hub for the improvement of the teaching and learning of all STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) subjects. Wanting to capitalize on this core strength, in an educational landscape where collaboration is often online and even across state lines, and communicate it's role as the bridge between STEM education research and practice, the Center for STEM Education has been re-launched as simply, The STEM Center.
