The mission of VT-STEM is to share research and resources among the university, public education, and other partners that will contribute to Virginia’s leadership in K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education through: serving as a bridge between the K-12 community and the university; partnering with the K-12 community to prepare university students and faculty to participate in outreach efforts; facilitating quality K-12 STEM education experiences; and collaborating with the K-12 community to enhance teacher preparation and professional development.
What is VT-STEM K-12 Outreach Initiative?
Science, technology, engineering, and math education (STEM) is at the forefront of our nation's agenda. Both national and global development and sustainability are contingent upon fostering discovery and development in the STEM disciplines. VT-STEM is focused on building networks within the university and across K-12 communities to enhance the effectiveness of integrated STEM education resulting in improved science and technological literacy and the competitiveness of Virginia’s students.
