We would love to feature some of your student’s work on our social media outlets. You can help us with this by using the #STEMATHOME hashtag and tagging the Oakley STEM Center (@TNTechSTEM) on your posts. We will have  a new set of activities available every Monday followed by us sharing student work every Friday.

If you have any questions, please contact Carlos Galindo at cgalindo@tntech.edu or Ashley Pompell at apompell@tntech.edu
