Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)

The Mission of STEM Education:  

To promote Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics planning, managing, and providing scientific research and professional and technical services (e.g., physical science, biomedical, geo science, bio chemistry, engineering) including laboratory and testing services, and research and development services

 

To Accomplish this Mission:

 

The complete STEM education program will support students:

  • Through high quality classroom and laboratory instruction

  • Development of premier leadership, personal growth, and career success

  • Enhanced opportunity to build career skills

We aspire for excellence as we recruit, prepare and encourage individuals to pursue life skills through STEM education.

 

We serve the community and inform them about STEM, the needs, opportunities and challenges, as well as provide life long career skills.

 

STEM programs will respond to community needs and Kansas' STEM needs. It should prepare students to enter the workforce and to participate as leaders, innovators, and managers in a global economy.

 

Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics planning, managing, and providing scientific research and professional and technical services (e.g., physical science, biomedical, geo science, bio chemistry, engineering) including laboratory and testing services, and research and development services. - See more information on The 16 Clusters Website.
