Promoting and Expanding the Teaching and Learning of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education in K-12 Schools Across Tennessee

ABOUT US

Tennessee STEM and STE(A)M School Designation was developed to provide a “roadmap” for schools to successfully implement a STEM or STE(A)M education plan at the local level. The tools and resources created define the attributes necessary for a school to create a comprehensive STEM or STE(A)M learning environment for its students. A school that receives Tennessee STEM and STE(A)M School Designation will be recognized by the Tennessee Department of Education for its use of STEM or STE(A)M teaching and learning strategies and serve as a model from which other schools may visit and learn. All K–12 schools serving students in Tennessee are eligible.
