About the PEER STEM series webcasts:
PEER collaborates with KAMU-TV to bring live STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) educational webcasts to K-12 students nationwide. Webcasts feature professors, scientists, veterinary students, technicians, and clinicians who discuss veterinary medical and STEM-related topics aligned with Texas state science standards. Topics range from human and animal health to college preparation and enable K-12 students to make relevant connections between science and real-world careers.
KAMU-TV films each presentation in high definition and they are archived on the PEER YouTube channel for future viewing.
PEER provides multifaceted outreach for science and veterinary medical education. Middle and high school curricula, state and nation-wide video conferencing and webcasts, and presentations to K-12 students stimulate career interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
Funding for PEER is composed of three grants: GK-12 Fellows Integrate Science/Math in Rural Middle Schools, Integrating Environmental Health Science in Rural Schools, and Science Promotion in Rural Middle Schools, a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA).
National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
