What is STEM?

STEM learning focuses on the interconnected content areas of science, technology, engineering and math and recognizes the importance of inquiry, investigation and innovation to power our economy and advance our society. We need our future leaders–today’s learners–to have the hands-on, real world experiences that will help them develop the skills required to drive and thrive in a strong, information-age economy.


STEM Resources

In our efforts to create and elevate STEM opportunities throughout the region, we come across many great resources for educators, industry leaders, and youth and families. Explore the resource pages to find STEM materials and opportunities.
