Parent, Community Resources, Partnerships with High Schools

CP-STEM offers access to resources for parents and the community through collaborations with high schools and special events.

Math Contest
Oakton hosts the American Mathematics Contest (AMC) 8/10/12.

Student-Industry-Teacher Simulations (SIT-SIMs)
SIT-SIMs is currently offered as part of the STEM Fest held annually in April. High school teachers may participate in two different ways. The teacher will have an opportunity to review simulations to determine whether they are appropriate for high school students. The teacher will have an opportunity to bring students to the SIT-SIMs at Oakton and participate in the activities along with the student. The teacher may request CPDU for attending SIT-SIMs.

Conference on Promoting STEM (CoPS)
Teachers are invited to attend CoPS to expand on strategies to recruit and retain students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. CPDU and stipend will be offered to attendees.
