Districts

Working with district administrators and partnering with local and national companies, Prairie STEM provides access to industry, expert level mentors, virtual and actual internships with early and high frequency STEAM innovation challenges and activities for all students. We work with local and national foundations to help bridge funding gaps to meet the needs of those who need it most. We use a train-the-trainer model to equip teachers in their districts to work independently as well as collaboratively to enhance education and promote sustainability. We measure program impact and analyze strengths and weaknesses in our customized program delivery to show real-time metrics for district partners and regional stakeholders.
