Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math – oh my!  Our RSMS S.T.E.M. Club and over 400 other middle and high school participants will engage in the annual STEM EXPO, on April 9, at Middle Tennessee State University, in Murfreesboro, TN. 

The Middle Tennessee STEM Innovation Hub encourages students to engage

in projects involving a process of inquiry in response to a complex question,

problem or challenge. These rigorous projects help students learn key

academic content and practice skills necessary for success such as

communication, collaboration, and critical thinking. The STEM EXPO will

showcase original projects by Middle (5th - 8th) and high school students from

the STEM Hub partnering school districts across middle Tennessee. 

All student projects must belong in one of the following categories:

  • STEM Research: Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Biotechnology, or Medical/Veterinary Medicine.
  • Engineering: Mechanical, Industrial, Civil, Aerospace, Automotive, Environmental, Biomedical, Chemical or Electrical.
  • Technology: Computer programming, games, designing application or designing websites.
  • Agricultural STEM: Farming and Animal Husbandry.




More information will be given out about the Expo and additional meetings will be scheduled as needed.
