In Fall 2020, STEM stakeholders from across Nevada came together for the STEM Summit, hosted by the Nevada STEM Networks. During the STEM Summit, STEM program designers, facilitators, educators, industry leaders, and government representatives discussed and identified needs for the State of Nevada’s STEM ecosystem.
As described in each region’s Strategic Direction, three major themes arose from the Summit:
• Equity in STEM
• Awareness of STEM opportunities
• Access to high quality STEM education
The committees in each region (the Northwestern, Rural, and Southern) have been compiling best practices regarding increasing awareness in STEM, as well as examples of local programs that model strategies to raise awareness in their community. Below you’ll find strategies, examples, tools, and research regarding awareness in STEM.
In the menu below, you'll find an awareness tool for your region. The tool is meant to be a launch point for those with an interest in raising awareness of STEM in Nevada. This document is intended to be an idea generator. The Networks intend to use this document with stakeholders in the region as we collaboratively work toward raising awareness of in STEM.
