Louisiana STEM Network
The Louisiana Regional STEM Network (LaSTEM) is a system of STEM leadership entities strategically positioned across Louisiana, similar to the Regional Labor Market Areas (RLMAs) identified by the Louisiana Workforce Commission to improve access to STEM education, participation, and advancement from Pre-K to Grey.
This includes closing the opportunity gap for underrepresented and underserved populations to engage in Louisiana’s STEM workforce and economy. Regions will share information, work together, and be interconnected by coordination of resources which can also provide a gateway to other networks and initiatives. The Regional STEM Networks and Centers are connected with and serve the statewide LaSTEM Advisory Council.
Regional STEM Network Funding
The Louisiana Legislature appropriates funding each year to support the STEM activities and events in each region.
