EQUITY THROUGH ACCESS + OPPORTUNITIES
The research is clear: a strong cradle to career STEM education prepares students for high-demand jobs and contributes to the vitality of their families, communities, and local economies. Founded in principles of equity, partnership, and sustainability, Washington STEM creates solutions and partnerships that bring STEM education to Washington students, especially those historically underrepresented in STEM fields like students of color, girls and young women, students living in poverty, and students living in rural areas.

Partnerships
We forge powerful partnerships to unleash our collective potential. Partners help us create and scale solutions for Washington students.
