Educating the Future of STEM On July 11, Southern Research unveiled its brand new STEM Education Outreach Center, a state-of-the-art facility that will be used to host students from around the state and engage them in the STEM field with an interdisciplinary approach. SR's STEM Education Outreach Director Kathryn Lanier cut the ribbon on the facility with Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin, alongside representatives from across the city and the state of Alabama. With the new lab in place, SR was able to hold its STEM Excellence Program (STEP), a week-long camp in which high school students collaborated with SR employees on multiple fun experiments. The lab has also played host to the six Alabama teachers who participated in the 2018 Summer Internship Program for STEM Educators (SIPSE).
