The State-Federal STEM Summit runs June 25-26 and is hosted by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

Peters will join more than 150 of his colleagues from states, territories and tribes across the country at the summit. The dialogue is expected to focus on federal STEM education plans and the best use of STEM education resources for states to grow their STEM programs.

“I am honored to have this opportunity to be a representative for our state,” Peters said.

Peters is executive director of South Carolina’s Coalition for Mathematics & Science, which is housed in Clemson’s College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences.
