Fireside Chat

“Welcome to this edition of fireside chat,” said William LaForge.

“Each summer Delta State hosts a wide variety of summer camps, from art and music to athletics and recreation. This year, Delta State introduced a new camp focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. There is a need in our nation for greater emphasis on STEM education, and camp coordinators in the Departments of Biological Sciences and Mathematics have developed modules that are hands-on and inquiry-based that will enhance science and math understanding.”

“The inaugural Kent Wyatt STEM Summer Camp is taking place this week, and here to share the details with us is Dr. Ellen Green, chair of Biological Sciences, and Dr. Tom Brady, chair of Teacher Education and Leadership.”

The guests tell the audience how the idea came about for the camp, what the significance of naming the camp for President Emeritus Kent Wyatt is, what campers will experience throughout this week, and how students can become more involved with STEM education on our campus.

“Thank you for joining us today and for sharing information on STEM camp.”

“The Delta State family takes pride in programs that enrich the student learning experience, both for current students and for those younger students who may join us later in life. The quality of programming offered during the summer and throughout the academic year supports our standard of excellence as a regional university of national distinction.”
