The Missouri Mathematics and Science Coalition will hold the annual STEM Day at the Capitol, with a focus on K-12 and Higher Education STEM programming. We will have space available on the 3rd floor rotunda of the Capitol for STEM programs to set up booths and showcase various school and student science projects and activities. Participating groups will showcase their STEM programs, projects and past/current work.
Highlights of the event will include:
Organizations and students will have a chance to share their love and excitement for STEM with Missouri state legislators
Educators will have the chance to demonstrate the impact that STEM has on student achievement and why Missouri needs to invest more in curriculum, program support and professional development
School administrators will be able to showcase current efforts in their schools and districts with a focus on attracting more attention for the need to support STEM efforts in K-12 and higher education at a local, regional and statewide level
STEM program directors and professionals will have the opportunity to promote the advantages and impact that STEM programming can have on Missouri's youth
Networking with legislators and other key STEM educators and program directors

Change the Equation releases report
leaders in Missouri have sounded an alarm. They cannot find the science,
technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) talent they need to stay
competitive. Student's lagging performance in school is why. To address this
challenge, Missouri is raising the bar. The state has joined 44 others in
adopting rigorous math standards for K-12 - Common Core State Standards -
and it is working with other states to create robust tests aligned to those
standards. A national STEM group, Change the Equation, has released a report
to show where Missouri now stands.
