The Skagit STEM Network will provide the resources and a collaborative environment for educators, administrators, businesses and community based organizations that better enable them to help the students of Sedro-Woolley. The intent is to create a scalable program that other Skagit County School Districts can adopt and participate in.
During our early investigations around creating a STEM Network, we discovered a wealth of activity occurring in the community. However, many of these efforts are working independently. The creation of a STEM Network will create a single point clearinghouse for all related activity to plug into, and thereby more effectively leverage their efforts. It will facilitate the creation of a long-term focus on addressing the needs of the community when it comes to preparing future generations for economic success, and will create greater connections between our students and local industry.
Below are the Skagit STEM Network’s initial planning partners and community based organization partners. We invite you to join with us and participate in creating an even brighter future for Sedro-Woolley and Skagit County students. Come join us!

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.
