Coming Soon: STEMtember 2024 Updates! Get ready for an amazing lineup, reminiscent of last year’s events listed below.


Join us for a month-long celebration of STEM! 

Dive into the excitement of STEMtember, where innovation and discovery come alive!

Our “STEM Happens Here” Promotional Campaign is set to ignite a sense of belonging and the importance of STEM education. Join us as we spread the message that “STEM is Everywhere. STEM is Everyone. All are Welcome.” through engaging events, media outreach, and community-wide participation. From the STEM-packed Family Fun at Gathering Place to dynamic gatherings like STEM in Motion and the inspiring STEMtember Teacher Appreciation, this year’s lineup promises a month-long celebration that celebrates and elevates STEM across all ages and backgrounds.

“STEM Happens Here” Promotional Toolkit

We’ll celebrate “STEM is Everywhere. STEM is Everyone. All are Welcome.” through a community-wide, multi-platform initiative to promote a powerful message of belonging and the importance of STEM education. We will leverage a range of communication channels across our community, including yard signs, banners, social media, radio and TV ads, a partner media kit, and engaging events, to effectively reach diverse audiences and create a widespread impact.

We’re looking for our partners to join our efforts and leverage their voices for this community-wide showcase of STEM!

Teacher Appreciation Night: September 28

During our Teacher Appreciation event at Heirloom Rustic Ales, we’ll celebrate educators and show appreciation for their work providing STEM experiences across northeastern Oklahoma. Teachers will be treated to food and craft beer while learning about the science behind the food and brewing industries. It’s a fun, educational opportunity for teachers and our time to say THANK YOU as they kick off a new school year.

Teachers of all age groups and subjects are invited to explore the science of food and fermentation. Tour the brewery and learn about this from Heirloom’s master brewer. Meet with community partners to learn about bringing food science to the classroom. Enjoy food, drinks (alcoholic and non), prizes, and more!

This event is free, but space is limited, and registration is required. Must be 21+, no plus ones. You may be asked to provide your school ID. 

STEM Anytime!

At Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance, we know that sparking and sustaining interest in STEM careers requires strengthening a student’s identity, academic capability, and access to engaging coursework taught by ambitious educators. We also know that school leaders, camp directors, and caregivers could help. That’s why we are excited to make our STEM Experience curricula free to use to enrich your in-class, after-school, or vacation programs! Engage in STEM activities during STEMtember or anytime with TRSA’s STEM Experience Playbook!
