The Notre Dame Center for STEM Education seeks to transform STEM teaching and learning for young people in Catholic and public schools by engaging in basic and applied research and the professional formation of STEM teacher leaders.

We believe that all young people – especially those from underserved communities – deserve a high-quality STEM education in order to shape their own futures and those of the communities in which they live.

Faculty in the Center advance the field of STEM education and shape the professional formation of STEM teachers through diverse and rigorous research. Collaborating with researchers and practitioners across the nation, our research agenda aims to help all students innovate, engage, and excel in the STEM disciplines.


Other Engagements

The Center supports STEM teaching and learning through various outreach efforts beyond our flagship programs. 

With graduate coursework in the Alliance for Catholic Education, we help form the next generation of Catholic school math and science teachers. In our CREST program, we partner with local Catholic schools to bolster their STEM offerings. Through several Summer STEM Camps, we partner with Catholic schools across the country to offer affordable STEM learning for middle school students.
