Washington STEM Joins 100Kin10

Share STEM

National Initiative to Grow STEM Teaching Force

Washington STEM commits to advancing goal of recruiting, preparing, and retaining 100,000 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) teachers in 10 years

New York, New York, February 13, 2013 — 100Kin10, a multi-sector partnership addressing the national imperative to train 100,000 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) teachers by 2021, today announced that Washington STEM has been accepted as a partner.
Washington STEM will grow the number of excellent STEM teachers serving the most underrepresented and underserved students in Washington state by deploying a collective impact strategy that aligns diverse groups around a shared agenda in up to 10 regional STEM networks across the state by 2015.
More and better-trained STEM teachers are essential to prepare America’s students to fully participate in our democracy and to comprehend, and devise solutions to, complex national and global challenges. All students—not just those fortunate enough to attend certain schools—must have STEM literacy to find meaningful employment in a rapidly changing economy that has at its center a range of jobs based on skills grounded in the STEM disciplines. [Organization] is one of 159 100Kin10 partners unified by a single, ambitious goal: to prepare all students with the high-quality STEM knowledge and skills to equip them for success in college and the workplace.
Organizations are accepted as 100Kin10 partners following a rigorous vetting process conducted by the University of Chicago, which reviews the innovation and boldness of each organization’s commitment(s) toward expanding, improving, and retaining the best of the nation’s STEM teaching force, or building the 100Kin10 movement, while also determining the organization’s capacity to meet the proposed commitment. 
Each nominated organization must demonstrate its unique resources and know-how, as well as a proven ability to deploy those assets creatively and strategically to address the nation’s shortage of STEM teachers and ensure high-quality STEM learning for all students. A complete list of partners—with new partners highlighted—appears below and is also available on the 100Kin10 website.
All partners bring content expertise and programmatic or funding capacity to advance the initiative. As they fulfill their ambitious commitments and work together to spark innovation, they have access to exclusive opportunities, including competitive research grants, leading-practice case studies, capacity-building workshops, collaboration grants, and a funding marketplace. To date, 28 partners have engaged in joint problem-solving or new, collective work as a result of 13 collaboration grants, and more than 32 innovation grants have been awarded to 22 different 100Kin10 partners.
