STEM Mobile Explorer Tours
The STEM Explorer is Delta College's custom 38 ft mobile outreach vehicle. Primarily
used to impact the region's youth, faculty, students, teachers and industry partners
collaborated to develop the modules used by students to explore STEM topics. The vehicle
will make over 100 visits a year to schools in the Great Lakes Bay Region, as well as
offer professional development for teachers and summer camps for disadvantaged youth
over the summer.
The tour will include a presentation on the different approaches we use with middle
schools and high schools as well as what we have learned embarking on such a large
project. You will also have an opportunity to interact with a few of the hands-on
modules we have developed and experience STEM in a new way.
Biography and Leadership Philosophy
For the last year Schultz has served as the inaugural director of the STEM Talent
Institute. The Institute serves the Great Lakes Bay Region as a catalyst for educational
change and novel solutions to STEM-related educational and employment issues. By working
collaboratively with leaders from K-12, higher education, non-profits, communities and
businesses, pathways will be created for exciting and rewarding STEM careers.
Schultz currently serves as the Principle Investigator on two grants, a TUES level 2 NSF
grant to provide professional development for Two-Year College Physics faculty during
their first five years of teaching and a $4M family foundation grant to
create a mobile STEM Exploration/Maker Space to provide world class educational
opportunities for the youth of the Great Lakes Bay Region. Schultz has served as Chair
of the Science Division at Delta College and maintains his faculty rank as Professor of
Physics. Schultz has also taught high school physics.
