Tri-County STEMersion is a two-week institute, developed through a unique partnership between the Economic Development departments and the South Carolina Department of Commerce, delivering hands-on training for up to 40 middle and high school educators in each of the region’s school districts.
During the institute, educators visit local companies and participate in real-world learning opportunities and lesson writing activities that reinforce how math, science, and soft skills impact the Tri-County region’s workforce and economic growth.
