The Apple STEM Network is an alliance of K-12, Higher Ed, and community partners seeded at the confluence of the Wenatchee and Columbia rivers.


Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education is at the center of nationwide efforts to provide our students with 21st century skills. Critical thinking, discovery, innovation and problem solving are the keys to success in tomorrow’s economy and STEM related job opportunities are growing at a rapid rate. While the STEM job market is ever-expanding, there is also a wealth of support for the case that fluency in STEM subjects is vitally important for every student; regardless of their eventual pursuit of STEM vocation.

The Apple STEM Network takes every opportunity to collaboratively provide resources and infrastructure through the coordinated efforts of K-12 educators, business partners, nonprofits, higher education institutes and community leaders to promote STEM literacy with a commitment to support and empower educators in our community to foster a deep appreciation of the utility of STEM fluency in each and every student.
