T-STEM » About us

T-STEM Learning Network The T-STEM Learning Network is a combination of people and a supportive process that values evaluation, creates a space and structure for collective understanding, shares learning in targeted ways, and improves potential for scale.

Purpose: To increase student performance and career awareness in the area of STEM by linking schools, universities, centers, organizations and businesses with valuable resources and tools associated with best practices in STEM education.
