Welcome to the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Teaching, Research, and Inquiry-based Learning (TRAIL) Center at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO)!

Thank you to all those who joined our September kickoff event and made it a success.  Dr. Carl Wieman has nudged us in the right direction with his talk on Science Education Reform, and Alaina G. Levine has provided our students with rich tools for finding their place in life after academia.  We invite you to stay connected with us as our Center evolves!
