STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Grant

April 1, 2009

The State of Colorado was recently named as one of six states to receive a $500,000 grant from the National Governor’s Association to establish regional science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education networks.  The Colorado STEM Network, comprised of five Regional Compacts, will coordinate with Governor Bill Ritter’s P-20 Education Council, The Colorado Achievement Plan for Kids, and the Governor’s Jobs Cabinet.  The activities of this grant align directly with the Governor’s education agenda to decrease the dropout rate, to double number of degrees and certificates, and to close the achievement gap.
