          STEM Day at Edinboro University (mid-October)

          STEM Day is an annual event held by the Math and Computer Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Technology, Geosciences, and Psychology Departments. It is held on Edinboro's Fall semester "Reading Day" for anyone interested in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering or Math. Faculty members and professionals in the STEM fields present research and informative subject matter ranging from genetics to detecting deception. It is spread across the University's STEM departments and applies learning through hands-on activities (such as using the Oculus Rift, extracting DNA, Psychology in action, and visiting the planetarium, observatory, and science museum) and interesting talks (such as "The Science of Rock and Roll", "Knights, Knaves, and Spies", "Putting the You in CPU", and "How to Optimize your Homecoming Date").

          We hope you can join us for one of our upcoming events:

          • STEM Day (4th annual) – Tues., October 10, 2017
