THE ST. LOUIS STEM ALLIANCE
The STEM initiative in St. Louis has been distributed through a number of organizations in the region. In 2014, the Saint Louis Science Center made efforts for collaboration to bring together the opportunities to connect students through the STEM pipeline to professions in St. Louis. It became clear that there were a multitude of organizations that needed connection in order to make the collaboration effective.
Through the St. Louis STEM Alliance, the Partnership envisions a matrix organization that will allow for connection and collaboration across the STEM initiative in the region. The public face of the Saint Louis Science Center will allow for individuals in the region to gain access to the Partnership and explore how they can benefit STEM in St. Louis. Cortex will act as the business connection to the Alliance and will help to facilitate the business link to the STEM Pipeline. The Engineering Center will be the hub for professionals and professional organizations to link into the Partnership. The Math Educators of Greater St. Louis aspires to connect teachers into the organization across the STEM initiative.
