WA non-profit invests $2.4 million in STEM education

Washington STEM, a new state-wide education nonprofit, has made an inaugural investment of $2.4 million to 15 educators, schools and education nonprofits from all corners of the state. The organization was created to discover and scale innovative approaches for improving STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education as a means for creating better opportunities for students.

In launching its effort, Washington STEM seeks to raise $100 million over the next ten years to increase the quality of STEM education throughout the state. Washington STEM intends to work with educators, schools, districts and programs statewide to discover, accelerate and scale effective approaches enhancing STEM education – particularly for students who have been historically underserved.
