The Michigan STEM Partnership is a statewide, public-private collaborative that includes educators, employers, policy-makers, and others who are concerned about addressing the current lack of STEM skills in schoolchildren and job applicants.
Grants: In 2014, the STEM Partnership will offer competitive grants that support a culture of applied learning that is hands-on, cross-disciplinary, and project-based. This new approach to education will nurture the development of skills required in the modern workplace. Information is availablehere and from each hub leadership team after March 7.
