InterMountain STEM

The InterMountain Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Launch Pilot (IM STEM)

Who we are

IM STEM is a network of STEM educators and leaders across six states (CO, ID, NM, NV, UT, and WY) working to support STEM equity at key transition points (middle school to high school and high school to college).
We work together to support academic pathways and workforce development programs that encourage increased participation by females and underserved populations (women, members of racial and ethnic groups, persons with disabilities, and persons with low socioeconomic status). The National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity (NAPE) serves as the backbone for the network.

What we do

  • Foster new partnerships to amplify the impact of organizations working on STEM equity
  • Support and grow a robust network across six states using a collective impact model
  • Develop an asset map of current STEM programs in our network
  • Create a data dashboard to monitor STEM equity in the region
  • Identify, share and scale best practices and successful programs
  • Share lessons learned from successful pilot projects across the network
  • Deliver NAPE’s professional development program with educators, including counselors and advisors
