STEM for Service is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation with a mission to improve STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) engagement for dependents and families in uniform service. Improving STEM engagement is a national priority recommended by both the White House Committee on STEM Education and Department of Defense strategic plans. Rand Corporation studies have found that as much as 80% of military recruits come from military families; families that consistently have educational outcomes below their civilian peers.

A strategy to improve STEM engagement to military families will meet two national priorities:

  1. Improve the pipeline of a STEM fluent workforce
  2. Improve recruitment, retention and readiness for the armed forces.

Support the mission of STEM for Service by getting involved through financial donations, organizational support and participating in events.
