Thousands of students will have access to high quality STEM programs thanks to the Great Lakes Bay Regional Alliance, and funding by Nexteer Automotive and East Central Prosperity Region MiSTEM Network.
The STEM Access and Equity Project provides learning opportunities that go beyond standard classroom activities.
