The Southwest Indiana STEM (SwISTEM) program for science, technology, engineering, and math at the University of Southern Indiana will begin its Equipment Lending Service for the 2012-13 academic year on August 14, 2012.
Educators in southwest Indiana are eligible to participate in the free service that delivers laboratory-grade equipment and hands-on mathematics learning tools to organizations involved in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education of pre-K through grade 12.
In 2007, USI was selected as a lead institution in the development and implementation of the new Indiana STEM (I-STEM) Resource Network. USI has primary responsibility for STEM-related efforts for the entire southwestern Indiana region. The focus of SwISTEM is on improvement of STEM-related education through curriculum assistance, resource provision, outreach activities, and professional development for educators in 12 counties within the region.
