We work together to improve student achievement by increasing the access that students and teachers have to hands‐on science and technology education equipment.
We accomplish this through increased resources and support for inquiry‐based curricula, tools, materials, and technology.
We believe that as this support increases, the gap in student achievement in science, engineering, technology and math will decrease regardless of grade, age or demographics.
Our membership is comprised of innovative businesses, organizations, and industry leaders whose primary mission is to support hands‐on teaching and learning in every educational classroom or environment in the U.S.
Increase student achievement in science by building awareness, appreciation and support for the technology, tools, materials and curriculum that support student achievement via hands‐on learning.
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
Our partner, the STEM Education Coalition, works aggressively to raise awareness in Congress, the Administration, and other organizations about the critical role that STEM education plays in enabling the U.S. to remain the economic and technological leader of the global marketplace of the 21st century.

The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are K–12 science content standards. Standards set the expectations for what students should know and be able to do. The NGSS were developed by states to improve science education for all students. Click here for more information.
