Recap: #waSTEMsummit 2018

Missed the 2018 Washington STEM Summit? Check out our recap of the day's events in our latest blog.


On November 27th, over 300 education, business and community leaders joined us at our annual STEM Summit on the Microsoft campus. Throughout the day, we explored how Washington students – particularly students of color, girls and young women, and students from low-income and rural communities – can develop the STEM skills they need to enter rewarding careers and create progress in our world.


This year’s special focus on our earliest learners and on connecting students with career pathways has left us energized and more focused than ever. If you’re hoping for a bit more in depth reporting, we’ve got you covered.  KIRO 7, GeekWire, and TVW‘s coverage of the Summit.


For a first hand account of the day, you can check out the below videos featuring Caroline King, CEO of Washington STEM, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr.’s remarks on STEM and equity, and the fireside chat with Governor Jay Inslee.
