This conference is organized and supported by a consortium of Washington STEM Education faculty and staff from public and private universities as well as NGO and government leaders. During the past five years, this group, with support from NSF, has been working collaboratively to create Next Generation STEM teacher preparation programs for the benefit of all preservice students in Washington State. We believe that strategic cross-sector collaborations hold the key to improving individual programs and we are committed to each other’s success.
