Programs spur advances in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education

WSU Tri-Cities is emerging as a regional hub for K-12 STEM research, education, and outreach.

In the 2013/2014 fiscal year, one researcher received over $16 million in funding for programs to help students in educationally isolated rural schools in the inland northwest. GEAR UP, as one of the programs is called, reaches over 50 rural schools, giving middle-school and high-school students and their families guidance on how to prepare for college.
