Develop a STEM/STE(A)M Leadership Team

It is recommended that schools interested in applying for STEM and STE(A)M Designation develop a STEM/STE(A)M Leadership Team that includes administrators and lead teachers. Schools with a team approach have been the most successful at creating a strong STEM/STE(A)M Action Sustainability Plan. (Word or PDF)

Complete the Self-Assessment

Together, the STEM/STEAM Leadership Team, assess their current level of STEM/STE(A)M implementation based upon the attributes within the STEM and STE(A)M Designation Rubric. Word version can be accessed here. Teams should complete all sections of the self-assessment and submit that document in the form below. You can access a PDF and Word version of the Self-Assessment.
