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.

The Partnership aims to foster a culture of cross-disciplinary, project-based, applied learning education (P-20) in which all subjects are seen to be connected to each other and related to real-world activities.

The STEM Partnership is the statewide connector between employers, educators, students, parents and policy-makers and it is playing an important role in nurturing collaborative efforts and effective communication practices between all stakeholders.

Grants: In 2014, the STEM Partnership offered 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 available here and from each hub leadership team.

Applications for Board membership are now open and will be accepted until July 18, 2014. Click here for more details.
