The Research Triangle Park

STEM in the Park


What We Do

By uniting universities, corporations, non-profits, and schools, we work to create a community where every child has the chance to explore and pursue a career in STEM. Here are just a few of the ways we do it:



Today’s students are the tomorrow’s STEM leaders, innovators and change-makers. At STEM in the Park, we aim to help them on that journey through various programs, events, and mentoring opportunities.

Examples include:

  • Expos
  • Short-term Mentoring
  • Long-term Mentoring
  • Internships
  • Job Shadowing



Teachers serve as leaders in helping prepare students for the careers of the future. To that end, we aim to help get teachers exposure to the STEM innovations of today and tomorrow.

Examples include:

  • Externtrips
  • Educator Summits
  • Professional Development


STEM Professionals

STEM industry professionals, graduate students, post-docs and faculty at higher education institutions can play a pivotal role in exposing students and educators to the dynamic world of STEM. North Carolina is home to STEM companies of all sizes, from pioneering entrepreneurs to large multinational corporations, in addition to top universities and community colleges. We look to partner with individuals and organizations of all sizes to encourage STEM outreach efforts.

Examples Include:

  • Speed Mentoring
  • Hands On Demonstrations
  • Industry Summits
  • Outreach Plans
  • Lunch and Learns
