The mission of the Nevada STEM Advisory Council is to increase student interest and achievement in the fields of science, engineering, technology, and mathematics, leading students to fulfilling careers in the New Nevada economy. As Nevada's economy modernizes and diversifies, the State will need more workers with the necessary STEM skills to fill in-demand positions in industries such as advanced manufacturing, logistics, healthcare, information technology, aerospace and defense, and agriculture.
The STEM Advisory Council is charged with identifying and awarding recognition to not more than 15 schools in this State, annually, that demonstrate exemplary performance in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Designated STEM Schools will be recognized by the Governor at an annual STEM School recognition event held in Carson City.
