STEMpact Immersion

STEMpact’s newest initiative is the STEMpact Immersion program. It’s dedicated to supporting high-quality science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) integration in school systems, leading to exemplary practices and outcomes.

Participating districts agree to take part in the three-year initiative. District central office leadership teams, lead teachers, instructional leaders and coaches and principals work with STEMpact facilitators to develop a centralized plan for model STEM instruction leading to stronger academic outcomes.
