Industry Partnership Opportunities

Everyone agrees that supporting and enriching science and math education is important but sometimes it is difficult to get a grasp of how to tackle the problem.

One of the goals of the Center for STEM Education is to partner with industry professionals to systematically increase student interest in and exposure to the fascinating world of STEM.

Please consider how you or your company can help us achieve our goal by becoming involved in one or more of our STEM education programs.

MindQuest Workshops

This is an opportunity to let your skills and talents shine! Our MindQuest program is designed to give students an exciting exposure to science and math in a fun and engaging setting. These hands-on workshops are held Saturdays throughout the school year, and we would love to develop a partnership in which you create and/or facilitate one of these workshops for  students in grades 3 through 12. Current workshop topics include LEGO Robotics, Environmental Forensics, computer game design and Arduino Circuit Boards, or you can develop any other engaging, innovative project that you would enjoy passing on to STEM hungry students!

Don't have time to give? You can help us continue providing these great opportunities to students by sponsoring a Saturday workshop, or contributing to our scholarship program so that we can bring the love of STEM to students in need!

PIPEline Partnerships

Do you have a favorite school or teacher you would love to help spread the love of science, technology, engineering or math? You can help out in many ways! You can provide a hands-on workshop in their classroom, or you can support them financially if they want to bring their students to UCCS for a field-trip! We are currently working to connect schools and teachers with organizations like yours!

Financial Support

Don't have time to give, but you want to help spread the love of science, technology, engineering and math? All of our programs are in need of your financial assistance as well. Besides our academic year MindQuest workshops, we conduct 3 summer opportunities for students in grades 3-12;

  • Our STEM By Me camps are week-long half-day camps for elementary students in grades 3-5
  • Our FLITE camp is a week-long full day opportunity for students in grades 6-12 
  • Our SEEK camp is a week-long opportunity to explore engineering concepts for students in grades 6-12.

If you would like to help, please contact Dr. Dave Khaliqi, the Director of the UCCS Center for STEM Education for more information.
