The Center for STEM Education and Innovation supports the national effort to prepare more students for educational and career success in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by focusing on:
- Meeting the diverse needs of all students—especially those from underrepresented groups, including women, minorities and English language learners, students with disabilities, and struggling and disengaged learners.
- Using technology, evidence, information, and innovative practice to support continuous improvement and accountability.
- Improving teaching and providing students at all education levels with 21st century skills needed to thrive in the global economy.
The Center's efforts are strengthened by public-private partnerships among educators, policymakers, and grant makers.
