"Regional Collaborative meetings of the Shasta County North State STEM Network and the the Northstate Secondary STEM Partnership (NSSP) provide time to discover, discuss, collaborate about the needs and opportunities related to science, technology, engineering and math in the North State and to see how we, as volunteers for this effort, can leverage our time and talents to make a difference for students in the present and future. As a business, industry, organization, government official, parent or education community partner, your perspective is valuable as we try to increase the opportunities for students to pursue a STEM-related career. The mission of North State STEM is to be the catalyst for STEM education by coordinating quality experiential programs and fostering private and public partnerships to build college and career readiness in the 21st Century. Northern California residents will have STEM knowledge and skills required for success in education, work, and their daily lives. At each meeting we will hear from those in our community building the collective impact of STEM education in order to fulfill our mission and vision."
