STEM Organizations

The STEM Education Coalition includes more than 500 business, professional and educational organizations advocating for preparation for and participation in STEM careers.

The Ventures Scholars Program has reviewed the web sites of 106 members of the Coalition that have information relevant to the Ventures Scholars, their teachers and their parents.

These web sites have been grouped according to STEM areas, and then alphabetized by organization. Elements of the web site significant to the Ventures Scholars, their teachers and their parents have been highlighted.

When exploring the web site make sure to use the search function to explore topics of interest, particularly, STEM, K-12, undergraduate and graduate education.

While some web sites are designed mainly for students (K-12, undergraduate, and graduate), their teachers and their parents, most of the websites are designed for the professionals associated with them. Thus the web site provides information specific to the professional aspects of the STEM area, e.g., developments in the field, continuing education, preparation requirements, and scholarship opportunities.
