STEM Lyceums through CEE

The Center for Excellence in Education (CEE), a Virginia nonprofit organization whose mission is to nurture high school students to careers of excellence and leadership in STEM, is offering a new opportunity. In addition to its other cost-free STEM outreach programs, CEE has a new program for students called STEM Lyceums. STEM Lyceums is an after-school virtual club for ALL Virginia high school students, with the purpose of building a virtual high school STEM community, and engaging students in discussions and explorations of STEM concepts and possible STEM career pathways. The goals of STEM Lyceums are as follows:

  • Increase the accessibility of scientific information to underserved and underrepresented high school students through direct interaction with experts in a specific field.
  • Foster a greater understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of STEM and critical thinking skills and encourage an excitement for inquiry-based science.
  • Prepare students for the potential of entering a STEM career and introduce them to a range of STEM career trajectories.

STEM Lyceums will occur monthly, with the kickoff event planned for February 2022. Due to its virtual format, STEM Lyceums could be a beneficial extracurricular learning experience for students, especially considering ongoing in-person programming restrictions due to COVID. Students can learn more about STEM Lyceums on the CEE website:, and can register here:
