About Rice STEM Summer Series

We are excited to announce the Rice STEM Summer Seminar Series. This series is designed specifically for 6th–9th grade students, teachers, and parents and guardians. The three-part series covers topics such as overcoming resistance to online learning, current STEM research at Rice, and applying and paying for college. These seminars are possible due to collaboration between the Rice Office of STEM Engagement (R-STEM), George R. Brown School of Engineering, and Tapia Center for Excellence and Equity in Education.

Seminars will last an hour long, from 2:00–3:00 p.m. CST on Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Thursdays. Specific dates and topics for each seminar can be found on their respective pages. Space is limited so registration is on first-come, first-served basis.
