TU Center for STEM Excellence

The Center for STEM Excellence thanks Maryland educators!

The Center for STEM Excellence thanks all Maryland educators for the amazing work they did in transitioning to distance learning for the end of the 2019-2021 school year. We've been working on creating a variety of resources to support teachers and students in the 2020-2021 school year, no matter what model of learning (distance, in-person, hybrid) is implemented.

Sign up for our newsletter to ensure you'll receive updates on our resources. We will begin accepting reservations for our Maryland Loaner Lab (and SciTech, if in-person field trips allowed) July 13, 2020.

And don't miss our Virtual Coffee House series (informal discussions with educators, colleagues, and friends from across the state), which we'll now be hosting the 3rd Tuesday of every month, starting Tuesday, July 21 at 3:00 pm. Sign up to access the Zoom meeting link for the Virtual Coffee House meetings.  

In response to COVID-19, the Towson University Center for STEM Excellence team is practicing social distancing and working from home. We're still available during regular business hours by email ( or ) and look forward to continuing to support you during this period of distance learning.


Located in downtown Baltimore’s vibrant Inner Harbor, the Center for STEM Excellence serves Maryland’s K-12 schools through outreach programs supporting science education.

The Towson University Center for STEM Excellence provides outreach programs to Maryland’s K–12 schools and is committed to engaging, exciting and educating Maryland's elementary, middle and high school students in science.

Two of our most long-standing and well known programs are the SciTech Student Learning Lab, a field trip destination at the Columbus Center in Baltimore's Inner Harbor where students engage in a 3-hour, self-contained lab experience lead by our instructors, and the Maryland Loaner Lab program. We also offer a variety of professional development opportunities for science teachers in Maryland.
