Idaho STEM Pipeline
There is a growing need in our Nation to prepare more students, teachers, and practitioners in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). There are excellent ongoing programs in Idaho designed to prepare and encourage students to pursue STEM fields in college and many other additional resources available to students, teachers, and the community. In an effort to better integrate various efforts and establish web-based access to multiple programs, the “Idaho STEM Pipeline” was created to serve as a user-friendly web portal that provides information on various Idaho programs to students, parents, teachers, and Idaho communities.
- Increase statewide participation in Idaho STEM by providing coordinated information and educational “pipeline” opportunities.
- Increase access to STEM learning opportunities within Idaho for all students, including women and those from underrepresented groups such as Native-American, Hispanic-American, Asian/Pacific Islander, and African-American populations.
- Provide a statewide clearinghouse of STEM pipeline programs available to K-12 students and teachers, undergraduate, and graduate students in the State of Idaho.
- Provide a statewide clearinghouse of STEM pipeline programs available to Idaho community members.
