Jump into Your dream

STEM is more than a discipline; it’s an alliance. Join a community of educators and innovators as you discover the wonders of science and mathematics. The STEM Education Alliance brings together four disciplines for the benefit of all. Through collaboration, education and innovation, you’ll learn better ways to teach STEM in high school and college classrooms. You’ll have opportunity to gain collegiate-level teaching experience through our Learning Assistant program. You’ll also have access to several scholarships designed specifically for you.
