VC STEM serves as a leadership hub for Ventura County. Our current work focuses on connecting organizations that are developing STEM programming, defining the attributes of high-quality STEM opportunities, and encouraging their adoption of quality criteria by formal and informal education settings.  We are building capacity for improvement of educational outcomes in STEM for all students throughout Ventura County.

STEM Club Program is a joint effort between Oxnard Union High School District and CSUCI with support from a U.S Department of Education Grant Hispanic-Serving Institution STEM grant (Project PROMESAS). 

Awards and Recognition

VC STEM recognizes high-quality STEM settings annually through the Golden Gear Award. In addition, VC STEM awards individuals and corporations with the STEM Champions and STEM Radicals Awards

Convenings

One of the ways that VC STEM achieves its goal of building a network and encouraging collaboration and resource-sharing is through regular convenings of its network partners. By working together we can collaborate to go much farther together than we could by trying to forge a path alone.
