STEM Revolution: Growing Colorado’s STEM Pipeline A STEM Educational Partnership Fundraising Campaign
December 21, 2015 Dear STEM School Family, STEM School is on the forefront of Colorado’s STEM educational revolution. But did you know that most workers in Colorado’s top five growing industries (aerospace, aviation, bioscience, broadcasting/telecommunications and energy) come from outside Colorado? Our goal is to change that statistic. STEM Educational Partnership is asking for your financial support. Help us continue to expand our world-class education beyond high school and middle school--this year starting in 5th grade and, looking to the future... beyond! WHAT: “STEM Revolution: Growing Colorado’s STEM Pipeline” Check-Writing Campaign
WHEN: Now Through February 29, 2016 WHY: We have Capital Improvement and Departmental Needs!
