Each year, we combine the data reported by the Ohio Department of Education with surveys of Ohio’s STEM and STEAM designated schools. This provides a detailed picture of Ohio’s growing and diverse community of schools. In each of these 69 schools, students experience a model that pairs career preparation with innovative teaching, college credits, industry credentials, and local business needs.
Here are just a few of the key highlights from this year’s report. Inside Ohio’s STEM/STEAM schools:
Additionally, through the Ohio STEM Learning Network, these schools are connected to each other and to national resources. This year, those supports include our #STEMdrivesOhio Design Challenge, computer science professional development programs, the Innovative Leaders Institute, and soon, the Manufacturing and Engineering Externship Program.
