The Council report lists four pillars as necessary components to establish a system that will produce STEM-equipped students and educators.
Create a STEM culture
This culture inspires, informs, and mobilizes all community members toward economic and educational success.
Empower STEM teachers
Educators need research-based professional learning, resources and networks of support to provide robust STEM learning experiences for students.
Integrate business and education
Business and industry partners provide authentic and relevant problems for student learning. When schools and business collaborate, students and the community benefit.
Ensure high-quality STEM experiences
High-quality experiences engage all learners to improve their educational outcomes and enjoyment of school.
We are proud to serve our STEM community to ensure each and every student gets a quality STEM education and employers have a STEM literate workforce to hire from.
