Thanks to the interest and support of educators, business leaders and community organizations throughout Northwest Washington, the Skagit STEM Network is expanding!
The new NW Washington STEM Network will now be a part of the Northwest Educational Service District 189 and allow us to be a catalyst for STEM in Island, San Juan, Skagit, and Whatcom Counties. We will continue to be part of the overall Washington STEM Network.
The current Skagit STEM Network will continue under our organizational umbrella. As importantly, we are fostering the creation of new partners, such as the Whatcom STEM Network! This new structure will also help to build even stronger partnership with local and regional organizations, such as Futures Northwest.

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.

With all of us experiencing school and community facility closures, the Skagit STEM Network wanted to pass along some suggested free resources to keep life-long learning going in fun, creative and engaging ways.
This is such an extraordinary and challenging time and we recognize the importance of staying connected to the community, of keeping relaxed and entertained, and helping each other and our families.
We are such a strong, resilient and caring community. Together, we can do this! Stay safe, healthy and inspired.

Congresswoman Suzan DelBene kicked off the second annual Spotlight on Women in STEM that attracted nearly 400 area junior and high school students from all Skagit schools. She shared her journey in STEM fields. “As someone who made a career in STEM before coming to Congress, I know how important it is for young women to develop the skills to compete in a 21st century economy,” she said. “Understanding how things work will benefit you wherever you go! I want to encourage you to pursue your passion.”
