Welcome to CEITR laboratory for STEM research in K-12 and higher education. 

There is an increasingly higher demand for STEM careers while there is less interest among current high school and college students to study STEM subjects. There will be more than 9 million STEM jobs between 2012 and 2022 and increase of 13% STEM job growth between 2012 and 2022. This is faster than 11% growth in other occupations. While only 16% of American High school seniors are proficient in math and interested in a STEM career (US Department of Education, 2015).

We have established STEM research lab at CEITR to explore and identify issues, challenges, and teaching strategies related to STEM to be able to better prepare students for the future STEM related careers.
