New Multistate Network to Promote STEM Education

Thirteen state STEM education networks are joining forces as part of a new coalition that aims to accelerate the growth of STEM-friendly policies, practices, and partnerships.

Announced today at a STEM "summit" in Dallas hosted by U.S. News, the national network is designed to better connect and coordinate the work of states and their stakeholders from education, business, government, and the philanthropic community.

"STEMx is uniquely positioned to impact STEM teaching and learning at a grassroots level through the sharing of STEM-specific resources and tools across the United States," said Eric Fingerhut, a vice president at Battelle, in a press release. Battelle, an independent research and development organization that has long been engaged in promoting STEM learning, is sponsoring the initiative.

Members of the so-called STEMx network include Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington state.
