Successful students. Thriving communities. And a vibrant Washington state.


Washington STEM advances excellence, equity, and innovation in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.


Equity: All students need and deserve a foundation in STEM to thrive in the 21st century. We pursue success relentlessly for every student in Washington, improving opportunities for those most underserved and underrepresented in STEM fields.

Grit: We’re in this for the long haul. Education is our greatest resource in creating a level playing field for all. We will not rest until every student in Washington is inspired and prepared in STEM.

Evidence-Driven: The future of the next generation is too precious for speculation. We apply rigorous thinking in all endeavors.

Outcomes-Oriented: We hold ourselves accountable to clear metrics of success and will nimbly shift strategies to drive progress toward our vision.

Powerful Partnerships: The greatest breakthroughs emerge from diverse voices working together. We forge powerful partnerships to unleash our collective potential.

Scale & Sustainability: We won’t be satisfied if we create more pockets of excellence, yet the overall system remains unchanged. We design our work to be sustainable and reach students in all corners of our state
