Overview

The Spokane STEM Network enhances STEM education opportunities for all youth in the region to increase the number of students who pursue and achieve success in STEM careers. Our goal is to reduce the STEM skills gap and grow Washington’s economy.

STEM by the Numbers

Washington STEM’s annual STEM by the Numbers reports let us know if the system is supporting more students, especially students of color, students living in poverty and/or rural backgrounds, and young women, to be on track to attain high-demand credentials.

Programs + Impact

Spokane STEM Network and GSI Business AfterSchool workshops: A series of industry skill workshops providing on-site awareness of Spokane’s high-demand industry sectors by highlighting new technology, research, development, and innovation. Our region’s students, families, and community are invited to engage in these career connected learning workshops that showcase the highly valued occupations and employment paths our industries incorporate. Students, parents, educators, and local businesses gather together in the workplace for a real-time visit to see these industries in action.

Spokane STEM Network and GSI Business host “Teaching the Teachers” –  Teaching the Teachers workshops gives educators the chance to experience what future opportunities for work and education await their students in the business world. Businesses get the chance to meet educators and educators get the chance to share what they learn with their students.
