About Washington STEM

Washington STEM was founded to reimage and revitalize STEM education for every student in Washington.  

 

The goal is for all Washington high school graduates to be STEM literate, prepared to complete post-secondary degrees, and thrive in Washington’s STEM-driven workforce and society.

 

They are tackling this problem by driving innovation and improvement in STEM education. They nurture and scale breakthrough ideas in STEM education, invest in communities to grow networks of STEM professionals and educators, and advocate for important policy changes.

 

Since its launch in March 2011, they have invested approximately $6 million and reached over 800 teachers, 24,000 students, and over 100 organizations.

 

Washington STEM Networks are creating unified systems of STEM education in their own communities – fostering partnerships, eliminating the duplication of work, and increasing impact. Washington STEM’s role in this process is to create a network of networks that spreads best practices among communities and drives the scaling of effective practices across the state.

 

Washington STEM invests in STEM Networks around Washington state to accelerate student success in ways that align with local economies.

 

In 2015, Washington STEM selected Sedro-Woolley to be a STEM Network!!! We are the first STEM Network to be established north of Snohomish County!
