STEM Designation

How Does a School Become a STEM School?

Ohio law provides a specific pathway for schools to seek and receive designation as a STEM or STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) school. Designation recognizes a school as an effective place for STEM or STEAM learning. 

Schools apply for designation from the Ohio STEM Committee, a committee of state and community leaders. The Ohio STEM Learning Network and Ohio Department of Education support the designation process.
