Michigan, together with business, education, and community partners, is embarking on a journey to create a MiSTEM
Network throughout the state. This opportunity grew out of Governor Snyder’s MiSTEM Advisory Council
recommendation to make Michigan a world leader in STEM education.
The Council report lists four pillars as necessary components to establish a system that will produce STEM-equipped
students and educators. The work of the MiSTEM Network is to build on existing STEM networks to create a STEM
ecosystem that supports and implements the components outlined in the four pillars.
