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!

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.”
