WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) is fueling economic growth and innovation throughout the United States, and Colorado is no exception. Improving STEM education and training in schools across Colorado is critical.

Colorado STEM is a community-driven effort to develop and implement the Colorado STEM Education Roadmap, a plan designed to advance STEM education for all Colorado learners, meet business needs, and attract new companies to the state.

Colorado STEM works to achieve and maintain the following goals:

  • Increase the quantity and diversity of students entering and engaging with STEM fields.
  • Identify and expand programs that excite students about STEM fields.
  • Invest in STEM education in the early grade levels
  • Work with Colorado’s 14 economic development regions to prioritize STEM in communities around the state.
  • Expand the coalition of P-20 educators, industry leaders, and economic development experts supporting STEM Roadmap implementation.
