  • Creativity and design
  • Innovation and entrepreneurship
  • Civic and regional engagement

All programs are rooted in mathematics with a science, technology, or engineering application and have +X outcomes for students. The Center for STEM+eXcellence programs are created and implemented by educators in public schools and universities.

All programs are held on the campus of Morehead State University and fully supported by the Center for STEM+eXcellence. The Center for STEM+eXcellence provides wrap around services for educators to implement their program ideas.

These services include but are not limited to full financial support and management; media support; public outreach and recruitment of students; program management; curriculum alignment; supply and equipment ordering; assessment instrument design; on-campus in-class support by way of assistants and interns; lodging, meals, transportation for educators and participants; printing; and activity and event planning.
