Advancing the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) is a key focus at SFA. We founded the STEM Research and Learning Center to house a diverse collection of initiatives and programs aimed at further enhancing the experience for STEM students and educators across the region and state.

Educator Support

SFA’s STEM Research and Learning Center is proud to offer a range of professional development programs to help you find new ways to share your love of math and science, engage your students in research and connect with other teachers to share strategies and best practices.


  • The STEM Research and Learning Center supports its commitment to inspiring the next generation of STEM leaders with a full program of experiential events for students at all levels. Students have the opportunity to enjoy a fun, dynamic community of STEM students exploring the many aspects of this exciting field.

  • Through SFA’s STEM Academy, students from Nacogdoches and Lufkin High Schools are exposed to rigorous science, technology, engineering and mathematics curriculum and investigative laboratory and field experiences. Recently, a group of students decided to study how the construction of the bridge on Starr Avenue would impact Lanana Creek's water quality in regard to biological health. This and similar projects prepare students for higher education and, ultimately, a STEM career.

  • Scouting STEM Day is designed  to spark an interest in STEM fields for students ages 5-12. Scouting STEM Day includes chemistry experiments, exploring electricity in a safe environment and investigating biology and astrophysics in the planetarium.
