STEM Partnership - Science / Technology / Engineering / Mathematics
In partnership with the Summit School District & CSU, we are working to bring Colorado State University's newly-created "CSU STEM Department" to Summit Schools, providing exciting opportunities for our students, teachers, and families. "Summit STEM" has recently formed to organize this effort, seeking the Summit Foundation's upcoming Innovations Grant of up to $150,000 over the next three years.
