STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. We know that much of the foundation for future STEM success begins in middle school. That is why the Texas Tech University STEM Center for Outreach, Research & Education (STEM-CORE) and the Halliburton Foundation are excited to announce the formation of a new program for gifted middle school math and science students in the Lubbock, Texas, area!
The TTU/Halliburton Middle School STEM Program offers students the unique opportunity to receive world-class mentorship and support in preparing for competitive mathematics and science competitions from TTU professors and students. In addition to holding a number of events, the program will feature targeted mentorship and support for our student participants throughout the 2013-2014 school year.

Parents and Students
We are excited to announce the 2014 TTU/Halliburton Middle School STEM Week, taking place June 9-12. During STEM Week, students will be challenged academically in exciting lessons and hands-on activities related to Energy and Bernoulli's Principle. Students will have the opportunity to construct wind turbines, hovercrafts, and cell phone solar chargers.
We invite students to sign up for STEM week through the STEM Program website, listed below. The week is free to students. Spots are limited and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis with consideration given to those who have demonstrated interest and commitment to STEM.
Each day of the week will be divided into two identical sessions. Students can sign up for either the morning or afternoon group. Both groups will receive the same lessons and participate in the same projects.
Below summarizes information about STEM Week. We will send out a detailed schedule of the week shortly. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail Liz Hames.
