Overview

Our mission is to increase STEM awareness, skills, and impact for all students. We engage with community, education, government, and industry to foster a STEM skills learning pipeline for the 21st Century workforce that supplies businesses with local talent and drives opportunity and prosperity for all in our county.

Currently, our Network has three strategies for increasing access to STEM learning experiences:

  • Promote interest in and access to STEM
  • Build educator capacity in STEM
  • Increase STEM learning opportunities directly for students

Programs + Impact

  • STEM Stars: In December 2017, all 700 students in the Marysville School District participated in an Hour of Code. A few students demonstrated for the entire school, sharing that they can use mistakes to improve code. Snohomish STEM Network arranged the initial training for 20 teachers in Hour of Code. RealNetwork sponsors and students received Amazon gift cards and Kindle HD 8s for their work.
