Our office has moved! We are no longer located in King Hall. Our new home is SBS (Social and Behavioral Sciences Building). Our main office is in room 216, with additional office space in rooms 222A, B and C.
SBS is in the middle of campus, next to the Computer Information Systems Building, across Chancellor's Walk from Cameron Hall. If you are picking up TLP equipment, there is a small loading zone area behind SBS. If you are visiting, Lot M, the visitor's lot on the southwest side of campus, across from the fields, is probably the best place to park.
We are very proud of our Administrative Assistant, AC Hosea, for appearing in UNCW's Teal Spotlight! Check it out!
Our Vernier Probeware Workshop and our Starlab and Solar Telescope Workshop were a great success! We plan to run both workshops again in the Fall, so keep an eye on our Professional Development page for updates!
We are proud to have been mentioned by Dean Teitelbaum of the Watson School of Education in his brief talk to the UNCW Foundation Board. Here is what he said,
"Our newly re-named Center for Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (or CESTEM) continues to provide professional development for area K-12 teachers; equipment through our Technology Loan Program; and informal and formal science activities and competitions for K-12 students through the Science Fair, Science Olympiad, and Junior Seahawk Academy."
Dean Teitelbaum said he only had a few moments to speak, so we are very proud he mentioned us!
