Regional Collaborative Partnership

The Regional Collaborative Partnership serves in an advisory and supportive role for the Core Partnership. The goal of the Regional Collaborative Partnership of educators, business people, legislators, and community organizations is to work together in augmenting the project’s work through the sharing of information, the development of system-wide strategies to promote teacher STEM education, and through providing opportunities and ideas for connecting teacher professional development to "real world" applications.
