The Skagit STEM Network can be a game changer for our students, our economy and our region.
STEM education opens doors for every Skagit County,Washington, student to succeed. And it allows all of our students to DREAM BIG.
WHAT IS STEM EDUCATION? It’s an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy.
OUR GOAL: Every student succeeds. A thriving Skagit County with a terrific quality of life. An amazing place to live, work and play.
We are passionate about helping every student succeed in the 21st Century. We aim to lead the STEM charge in Washington State, and serve as a model for innovative thinking and action.
Join us and pass along the power of STEM!

NW WA Employer Internship
& Apprenticeship Roundtable held Dec. 7 at Skagit College
Just an amazing afternoon at the Northwest Washington Apprenticeship Roundtable, with more than 60 top business, education, government and community leaders in attendance.
Tremendous discussion about the power of creating a culture of learning and giving all children the opportunity to achieve the American Dream through career connected learning. College is only one path to prepare our children for life and success. Powerful learning how businesses can be creator of talent not consumers of talent.
