The mistem Network seeks to support and enhance teaching and learning in STEM.  It is our mission to ensure a robust ecosystem that empowers teachers, creates a culture of STEM for all, and is based on the highest quality possible.  To accomplish these things in the seven counties of the central Upper Peninsula, we work most directly with the ISDs, RESAs, Bay College, and NMU to reach all of our local schools.

If you have any questions or are looking for partnerships that might enhance your curriculum or provide professional learning for your educators, please contact Chris Standerford at The links below may also help you connect with local and state resources for STEM teaching and learning.
