STEM in Minnesota

Excite, challenge, and prepare

Whether they plan to pursue college or a workforce training program, all students require a rigorous core math program in high school to prepare for their future. More advanced math and science coursework can provide a gateway to achievement and foster meaningful connections in STEM.
Students who are interested and proficient in STEM are the most likely to pursue STEM majors and careers. ACT® tests provide a good measure of both by asking a student's intended major, and testing science and math competencies.
Completion of certificate and degree programs in STEM fields gives a picture of how well we are able to meet the needs of our future workforce.
