BRINGING STEM EQUITY TO VENTURA COUNTY

The VC STEM Network is a leadership hub who work with the community to develop collaborative and creative relationships between regional stakeholders to inspire, strengthen and improve educational outcomes in STEM for all Ventura County Students. We look forward to continuing our community engagement and increasing our capacity to serve Ventura County PK-20 students and teachers. 

We partner with STEM professionals and educators to show students what they can become. 1000’s of students have had the opportunity to interact with Scientists, Technologists, Engineers, and Mathematicians. We strive to ensure Ventura Students are college and career ready, and to increase the number of students who are pursuing STEM related careers and degrees. 

OUR TEAM

Is a collaborative interdisciplinary community working to foster the development of tomorrow’s STEM leaders. We are leaders from  PreK-20 education, business and industry, national parks, local and state government, the military and non-profit organizations who are creating a local infrastructure that embraces pre-kindergarten to post-graduate studies.  

College and Career Ready

  Our goal is to encourage our students to be curious and engaged, and ensure that they are prepared, able and ready to become the STEM workforce and leaders of tomorrow.

INSPIRING STEM INTEREST

Our partners know that the world is rapidly changing and that current systems are not responding to the workforce needs for the future. Even with the broad spectrum of resources available across our county, and our rich heritage of working together, broad disparities in quality of life and education still exist. 

We believe that it is imperative that all of Ventura County’s children, regardless of location or social status, have access to quality educational opportunities throughout their lifetime.
