Summit STEM: Our Mission
Enhancing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) educational opportunities for Summit County’s students, teachers, and families.
Summit STEM Programmatic Possibilities
- Complete an analysis of possible gaps in Summit School District’s current STEM curriculum.
- Research teacher’s and student’s STEM curriculum and support needs and design programs to fit the needs.
- Obtain and implement STEM classroom kits (including teacher training and/or co-teachers for support) for all levels tailored to fit current district needs and curriculum.
- Initiate new before and after school programs (introduce Lego FIRST) and enhance existing programs with STEM resources.

Summit Education Foundation Partnership
The Summit Education Foundation agreed to partner with Summit STEM to obtain seed money and develop STEM. Our first joint project is a grant proposal for The Summit Foundation Special Initiatives Fund, due June 1, which would bring $150,000 over 3 years. We’ll know if we won the grant on October 1.
CSU STEM (http://stem.colostate.edu/) has agreed to partner with Summit STEM by providing curriculum design assistance, measurable outcomes assessment, and their years of expertise in developing STEM resources in public schools.
