Key findings from 2023 Montana STEM Summit to be presented online Dec. 12
December 12, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
An online presentation at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12, will outline key findings and action items from the Montana STEM Summit, which was held April 13 in Helena. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
As the fourth edition of the statewide event, the 2023 summit convened representatives from business, education, government and nonprofit organizations along with youth to explore ways to expand Montana’s STEM opportunities in and beyond the classroom; create collaborations for high-quality STEM learning; and discuss how to strengthen STEM pathways for employment in Montana.
The Dec. 12 presentation will include STEM data for Montana and the nation; challenges and opportunities as identified by summit participants; and suggestions for advancing STEM in Montana. Attendees, especially those who were unable to attend the April summit, can also contribute ideas and feedback.
The Montana STEM Summit was hosted by the Montana State University Science Math Resource Center, the Montana Afterschool Alliance and a statewide committee with support from Million Girls Moonshot, Mott Foundation, Montana NSF EPSCoR, EdChoice, GEARUP, Overdeck Family Foundation and Wildfire Defense Systems Inc. A printed report from the event will be released following the Dec. 12 presentation.
The presentation is free, but participants must register in advance to attend. The presentation will be recorded for those who cannot attend live. For more information or to register, visit montana.edu/smrc/stemsummit.html.
