Great things are happening for students in the Wake County Public School System.
In 2018, WakeEd Partnership’s SummerSTEM program empowered one hundred K-12 teachers to bring real-world lessons to the classroom through partnerships with leading STEM organizations in the Triangle. Visit PNC Arena between 10:00 a.m. and noon on May 7 to meet these inspired educators and their students, and see the impact of strategic business-school partnerships and project-based learning on student achievement and career-readiness.
This event is free to attend but we encourage you to RSVP via Eventbrite!

What is STEMposium?
Each summer, 100 Wake County educators are embedded in leading STEM businesses and organizations across the Triangle for hands-on, career-focused professional development. Educators also receive coaching and direct instruction related to project-based learning (PBL). At WakeEd’s annual STEMposium, they share the projects they created and implemented in their classrooms.
“I was surprised that an idea created by a small group could impact such a large audience.”
-Student, Rolesville Middle School
Classroom Projects with Real-World Impact
Educators from Fuquay-Varina Middle School partnered with WakeEd Partnership, SAS, and Red Hat to implement a meaningful, school-wide project-based learning initiative to address food insecurity in their community.
