Welcome to the CESA 7 STEM FORCE.  This is a place for innovation, creativity, and problem solving in all things related to STEM education leadership (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).


The Department of Energy has also created a website resource, Women@Energy, showcasing talented and dedicated employees who are helping change the world, ensuring America's security and prosperity through transformative science and technology solutions. View profiles of women across the country, sharing what inspired them to work in STEM, what excites them about their work at the Energy Department, sharing ideas for getting more underrepresented groups engage in STEM, offering tips, and more.



Libraries as STEM Education Centers

Libraries are essential to STEM education efforts because of their strong connections to families and communities. This white paper includes information about STAR_Net education programs that were created to inspire lifelong learning through inquiry and play and resources for librarians. STAR_Net's Discover Earth and Discover Tech programs provide an example of the impact that a public library can have on its community by offering exciting and engaging STEM experiences.
