Mid-Columbia STEM Network

The Mid-Columbia region is at the confluence of the Columbia, Snake, and Yakima rivers in southeastern Washington. The area economy is fueled chiefly by agriculture, technology, manufacturing and government agencies. Mid-Columbia became the home of the world’s first full-scale nuclear reactor during World War II and now claims the world’s fastest production car. In 2011, the region was named “11th Geekiest City in the US” by Forbes magazine, based on the percentage of workers with STEM jobs.
