Mission Statement

The mission of the Glenn T. Seaborg Center is to enrich the knowledge and understanding of science, mathematics, and STEM related fields in the general public, particularly students and educators from preschool through college, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.


The staff at the Seaborg Center believe curiosity is a basic human characteristic, and we believe all individuals should have lifelong opportunities to learn, share, and grow as members of a STEM ecosystem.

Our Approach

To reach this vision, the Seaborg Center leverages many partnerships, both within Northern Michigan University and from stakeholders across the state of Michigan, to provide K-12 student learning experiences, career exploration, and educator professional learning.
