VISION, MISSION, GOALS
Our vision in leading the NE TN STEM Innovation Hub is to serve as a center for STEM innovation for Northeast Tennessee that capitalizes on robust STEM assets and disseminates pedagogical practices throughout the region. We aim to expand awareness of our resources and to increase access to our supports to educators across NE TN.
We are continuing to build a sustainable, synchronized learning network of partners to leverage the region’s STEM assets, including educators, LEA’s, IEH’s, business and industry, and non-profits.
Our goals are to
- provide high-quality professional learning experiences for educators in STEM
- facilitate interaction through regional meetings that raise up the voices and expertise of educators, disseminate innovative ideas, and lead to new collaborations
- support the local workforce and students by connecting and sharing the needs of regional employers with PK-12
schools and with insitutions of higher education in our region, and to form partnerships
for mutual benefit
