Episode Info:

Guest Kristen Zagorski Talks about the upper thumb Michigan STEM Network and its importance to both schools and businesses.

The newly legislated state network works with schools and businesses, promoting the impact of STEM careers on economic development across the state of Michigan and influencing career decisions to prepare students for their future. This state-led network has sixteen regions throughout the state of Michigan, each region granted their own director to allow a more unique approach to each region's localized area.

The Michigan STEM network, (standing for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) focuses on 4 main pillars: promoting the STEM culture by creating awareness to communities, empowering stem teachers to enhance a cross-curricular approach to teaching, integrate business and education to provide high-quality stem experience to all students. STEM doesn’t just apply to science, technology, engineering or math teachers. It is a cross-curricular approach to teaching as well as a method of problem-solving that is used in relation to one of those four areas, acting as a lens through which people can use to critically think and problem solve.
