Exemplary STEM education is much more than just “doing some math” while applying the “engineering design cycle” or scientific method. The focus on STEM education provides a true opportunity to change the way we teach and learn so that students are better prepared to thrive in today’s society. Ten80 champions a view of STEM that has been well defined by STEMWorks and Change the Equation. To be approved for listing on the STEMWorks database, the premier list of STEM programs that maximize ROI and make a real impact on students, there are 10 multi-dimensional criteria that must be met. Partnerships are key to accomplishing the goals set forth in each criteria.

All education requires funding and strong mentors. STEM Education is often not included in a district’s standard budget and therefore requires outside assistance from the community. You can provide funding, in-kind donations and mentors to help organize and sustain programs in your region. Ten80 proudly enters into public-private partnerships to craft the program that maximizes your ROI.
