A broad range of companies, trade associations and NGOs support science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education programs across the United States. From helping with curriculum development, to supplying classroom technologies, to conducting teacher-training seminars, to sponsoring science competitions, public-private education partners are working to help improve the quality of education programs. Many of the existing partnership programs were spawned from federal grant programs and face an array of issues related to sustainability, effectiveness and institutional change. The briefing explored their successes in improving STEM education and the challenges they face.
