The Millard Oakley STEM Center for the Teaching and Learning of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics is a state-of-the-art STEM-education facility at Tennessee Tech in support of a campus-wide initiative to enhance existing models and develop new educational strategies in STEM-related fields.


STEMmobile Reservations Open

The Oakley STEM Center is ready for another amazing year of bringing STEM to your local school. We are currently accepting requests to deliver the STEMmobile 10 weeks this fall and 10 weeks spring 2016. Don't wait space is filling up fast.


STEM Maker Camp Fridays

Join the Oakley STEM Team as we venture our way through the summer with 6 fun, STEM filled afternoons. Participants grades 4th -12th are invited to explore either the early or late afternoon sessions, where young minds will have new technologies to explore.


How to Succeed at the Science Fair Workshop

Several requests have been made by enthusiastic parents who want their children to excel in the STEM fields. Getting your young scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians to explore their curiosities can be difficult, and getting them to present their findings even harder. Join the Oakley STEM Team in one of our three Science Fair Workshops to get started on their road to STEM Success.


Longest Day of the Year Celebration

Back by popular demand, the Longest Day of the Year Celebration will be hosted at the Millard Oakley STEM Center, Saturday, June 20 from 7 - 10 pm. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the earth's orbit around the sun, the tilt of its axis, get a close up view of the sun, and observe the summer sky (weather permitting).


PLC's, Workshops, and PD's, Oh My!

Educators we are glad to announce a summer like non-other. The Oakley STEM Team has been working hard to bring you workshops, professional developments, and establish professional learning communities starting this summer and moving into the future.
