In its State Strategic Plan for STEM, the Nevada STEM Advisory Council established priorities and goals to ensure that all of Nevada’s students have access and opportunities to gain a high-quality STEM education. One of the key strategies recommended in the plan is to identify and fund evidence-based, high-quality formal and informal STEM practices and programs. To accomplish this strategy, the Governor’s Office of Science, Innovation and Technology (OSIT), in collaboration with the STEM Network High Quality Subcommittees, developed a Nevada-specific rubric to evaluate and identify high-quality STEM programs. The rubric was developed using research for high quality STEM programs and a rigorous independent evaluation process to provide guidance for measuring the quality of STEM programs.
The Nevada Governor's Office of Science, Innovation and Technology (OSIT) seeks eligible applicants that meet OSIT's criteria for high quality STEM learning. Any curriculum, set of instructional materials, educational program, or product intended for formal or informal STEM learning may be reviewed. The Nevada STEMList Rubric will be used to evaluate and identify high-quality STEM programming. Selected programs will be included on Nevada's List of Recommended STEM Programs overseen by OSIT.
