 STEM-H Education by sponsoring this event

This year marks the SEVENTH Annual Southern Virginia STEM-H Summit. This year's event will bring together approximately 200 high school students from throughout the Southern Virginia region. Students will take part in two ninety minute exploratory sessions. Each exploratory session is designed to expose students to a STEM-H field through hands-on exploration. An inspirational keynote will take place during lunch.

Lead an Exploratory Session

Are you a teacher, informal educator, or a STEM-H professional passionate about sharing your field with young people?

Consider leading an exploratory session!

These ninety minute sessions are offered twice and present a hands-on challenge, problem, or activity that provides an overview of a STEM-H field. Attending high school students select two sessions to attend during the event.

  • Community Champion for STEM-H Education
  • STEM-H Educator of the Year
  • Innovative STEM-H Program of the Year
