Mission and Vision

Mission: To collaborate with government, education, business, non-profit, and community leaders to engage students and families in a STEM ecosystem that enhances the Rural Nevada STEM workforce pipeline.

    Vision: The Regional Network will serve as the clearinghouse for identifying and scaling up quality STEM pipeline programming and be the "one stop shop" for all in their region.  Through this effort we will increase student STEM engagement, support a STEM-literate workforce, and build community around the opportunity that STEM brings.

      The Rural Regional STEM Network is made up of schools, colleges and universities, libraries, businesses, and informal educators in Churchill, Elko, Esmerala, Eureka, Humboldt, Lander, Lincoln, Nye, Mineral, Pershing and White Pine Counties. The Rural Regional STEM Network is overseen by Dawn Baldwin. For more information about the Rural Regional STEM Network Advisory Committee meetings, please contact Dawn.
