Tran-SET administration adopted alternative educational and delivery methods in order to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on STEM education and development activities. These alternative methods include the use of virtual environment whenever appropriate and applying social distancing and other CDC recommended practices for F2F activities. These alternative methods have proved successful in fulfilling the Center STEM mission and objectives. This web page provides STEM resources to students, parents, and teachers. If you have any questions related to partiticpation in any of these events, feel free to contact Dr. Momen Mousa at firstname.lastname@example.org or 225-424-9250.
