Last week, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed into law a bill that adopts CTEq’s STEMworks as a critical standard for quality in his state. The MiSTEM Advisory Council will use our rigorous, independent STEMworks review process to identify the state’s most effective STEM programs and then scale them with state funds.
Michigan joins Iowa in using STEMworks to ensure that state funds support programs that are most likely to have an impact. Iowa has already brought STEMworks programs to hundreds of thousands of children over the past two years.
At a time when state coffers remain light, our high standard and rigorous process will ensure taxpayers a strong return on their tax dollars. For many thousands of Michigan children, the effect can be life-changing.
