Clemson University Ph.D. student Abby Baker has developed workshops to deliver concepts related to science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics (STEAM) to elementary school students.

The lessons are a valuable extension in the education of Clemson students and the fifth graders they teach, but Baker is thinking even bigger. She is testing a model that she hopes will be copied across a state with a growing need for students interested in science and math.
