For K-12 Teachers

Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering Native American student outreach

Calling all K-12 teachers! The Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering has a fantastic opportunity for applicable schools. You can help your students become more involved in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields by introducing their schools to Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering Native American student outreach. This program is for schools with a significant numbers of Native American students and for schools that would be willing to involve SDSU within the regular curriculum. This program has its roots in the Oglala Lakota College, South Dakota State University and South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Pre-Engineering Education Collaborative (OSSPEEC), funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The outreach program is driven by engineering students who work with 6th through 11th grades in eligible schools by integrating their regular courses with Engineering opportunities and assistance. If you believe your child’s school would be interested, please have them contact Dr. Suzette Burckhard for more information.

STEM advocacy in K-12 schools is beneficial for students and their schools. Teachers can find online that give information on resources, support and training in STEM development. If you would like to attend a Teaching STEM workshop at SDSU, please contact Dr. Suzette Burckhard.
