Changing Lives Through Science
Our Mission Statement
Southeastern US and beyond:
1. Knowledge of, and education in, STEM and the biosciences
2. Innovation and entrepreneurship in STEM and the biosciences
3. The positive impact of STEM and the biosciences on human health
Here’s Why We Do It
As a state, we’ve made so much progress. Tennesseans have made world-changing discoveries. We’ve built world-class research and educational institutions. And we’ve grown world-leading companies in biotech, healthcare, health IT, and product development industries.
But there’s more to be done. There are more lives to change. So join us.
Here’s What We’re Helping Build:
STEM Preparatory Academy
We teach tomorrow’s problem solvers. STEM Preparatory Academy is dedicated to delivering a rigorous, inquiry-based education with a strategic focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. By cultivating a community of learning and academic excellence, STEM Prep will bolster the number of underrepresented students who graduate from the most competitive postsecondary programs and universities in the country and lead the discoveries and innovations of the future.
