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.

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.”
