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 Southern 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 Southern Regional STEM Network is made up of schools, colleges and universities, libraries, businesses, and informal educators in Clark County. The Southern Regional STEM Network is overseen by Craig Rosen.  For more information about the Southern Regional STEM Network Advisory Committee meetings, please contact Craig.
