TU Center for STEM Excellence

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.
