The headlines underscore how students in the United States are falling behind students in other countries in the critical areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
To help middle school students succeed, Dyersburg State Community College’s Division of Continuing Education is offering a new Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathe-matics (STEM) program.
STEM will be held the week of July 16-20 on the Dyersburg campus.
All middle school age children are eligible to participate. Students will meet with instructors from 8 a.m. to noon, spending one hour in each of the program areas.
A spokesman said enthusiastic instructors have been recruited to teach the classes. Jennifer Barham will teach science, Emily Reeves will teach technology, Lacye Schmidt will teach engineering and Rebecca Green will teach math.
The cost of the program is $100. The fee covers all costs, including instructional supplies, a T-shirt and snacks for the students.
To take part, the application and fee must be returned to the Office of Continuing Education by July 9. For more information, contact Teresa Evans at (731) 286-3267 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
