The STEMx network is a multi-state STEM network developed for states, by states. This grassroots movement provides an accessible platform to share, analyze and disseminate quality STEM education tools to transform education, expand the number of STEM teachers, increase student achievement in STEM and grow tomorrow's innovators.
The network is composed of 21 state STEM networks. WVUCE-STEM is the lead organization in the West Virginia STEM Network, working with The Education Alliance, the Governor's STEM Initiative, and the West Virginia Department of Education.
100Kin10 is a network of over 280 best-in-class partner organizations leading the charge to answer the President's call to recruit and support 100,000 new, excellent STEM teachers - and to take on the challenges blocking the path to our shared goal. As a member of the 100Kin10 network, WVUCE-STEM, through its programs WVUteach and PhysTEC, has committed to double the number of math and science teachers the University produces, a key need to improve STEM education for all West Virginia students.
APLU National Network of STEM Centers
WVUCE-STEM is a member of the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities (APLU) National Network of STEM Centers. APLU launched this organization to create a national discussion on university-based STEM Education Centers. The goal is to foster communication and interaction among STEM Education Centers to enhance their capacity to support effective undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education.
This Network involves centers that are discrete campus units with research and faculty activities that focus on the transformation of undergraduate teaching and learning of STEM disciplines.
WVUCE-STEM is an affiliate member of The National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity (NAPE). NAPE is a consortium of state and local agencies, corporations, and national organizations. Through its four lines of business - professional development, technical assistance, research and evaluation, and advocacy - NAPE strives to achieve its mission of building educators' capacity to implement effective solutions for increasing student access, educational equity, and workforce diversity. West Virginia is a member state. WVUCE-STEM is collaborating with NAPE through an NSF-sponsored Robert Noyce Scholarship program to bring improved preparation to future teachers in these areas and to provide professional development for educators in WVUteach partner schools.
