The Arizona STEM Network, led by Science Foundation Arizona, is a collaboration between business, educators, government and philanthropy sharing a common agenda to graduate more Arizona students prepared for the global economy.
The Network is focused on:
integrating STEM into schools and districts and strengthening teacher effectiveness in STEM through access to proven resources and strategies
scaling of successful STEM education programs to achieve greater impact
creating meaningful business engagement opportunities in education, leveraging proven resources throughout the STEM ecosystem
providing expert assistance through access to best-in-class tools, program certification and validated metrics to measure progress
changing the culture and community fabric to embrace STEM
The STEM Network is a trusted partner that provides new knowledge and research-based solutions to community efforts to improve STEM education. The Arizona STEM Network uses a Collective Impact Model to bring multiple entities together around shared goals and collective measurement. Acting as a backbone organization that provides value to the statewide STEM community, the STEM Network receives support from Arizona’s elected leaders, employers, CEO organizations and philanthropic partners.
