Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) Resources


CDE STEM Information

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) is used to identify individual subjects, a stand alone course, a sequence of courses, activities involving any of the four areas, an interconnected or integrated program of study, or a STEM-related course. This page and the links on it clarify what STEM represents in kindergarten through grade twelve education.


California Council on Science and Technology

CCST is a nonpartisan, impartial, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation established via Assembly Concurrent Resolution (ACR 162)  in 1988 by a unanimous vote of the California Legislature. It is designed to offer expert advice to the state government and to recommend solutions to science and technology-related policy issues. CCST is governed by a Board of Directors composed of representatives from its sponsoring academic institutions, from the corporate and business community, as well as from the philanthropic community.


California Teacher Advisory Council (Cal TAC)

Cal TAC’s goals are to disseminate public policy information from the state level to teachers, hold forums with members of the business community and provide feedback to and from the National Academies Teacher Advisory Council. Cal TAC members integrate their ‘wisdom of practice’ and contribute a valuable perspective to the California Council on Science and Technology education research and projects, such as the Critical Path Analysis of Science and Math Teachers.


Successful STEM Education

This site provides information and resources that highlight promising practices and tools in support of effective STEM education in schools and programs. Reports such as Successful K-12 STEM Education and Monitoring Progress Toward Successful K-12 STEM Education may be downloaded from the site.


California STEM Learning Network

The California STEM Learning Network (CSLNet) is a non-profit organization working to catalyze innovation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) teaching and learning in the State of California. CSLNet, in collaboration with state and regional partners, champions policies and practices that will rapidly scale STEM education innovation and support educators in preparing students for success in postsecondary education and work, particularly those students who have historically been underserved.

Change the Equation

Change the Equation aligns corporate efforts in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to ensure that they add up to real, measurable growth in the achievement and STEM fluency of our nation.


STEM Inventory

Welcome to the STEM education community! Look no further. The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Inventory is “the place” to go to research and find existing STEM education programs available that serve audiences throughout the entire STEM workforce pipeline, including Career Technical Education. The inventory is a great way for STEM education stakeholders to locate a STEM education and/or training program in their vicinity. It hosts programs for students, teachers, parents, and those looking to get involved with a STEM education program. For your convenience, search by keywords based on topic, region, grade level and more. If you would like to add a program to the STEM Inventory website, please register to be a user. The inventory offers users free advertising of their upcoming events and news. Help us create a virtual community for ALL of the STEM education and CTE stakeholders. Spread the word today!
