Progress Report on the Federal Implementation of the STEM Education Strategic Plan
This document is an annual progress report on efforts by the Federal Government to implement the five-year strategic plan for STEM education released by CoSTEM in December 2018. It is responsive to the requirements of Section 101(c) of the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010 (42 U.S.C. §6621). The intent of the progress report is to provide Congress and the wider STEM education stakeholder community with a window into ongoing and planned Federal activities, with the goal of leading by example toward the North Star vision of the strategic plan. The report includes an analysis of actions developed by the agencies of FC-STEM in support of the strategic plan’s objectives, a discussion of major focus areas across the Federal STEM education community, a description of the ways Federal agencies will work together to address common challenges, and an inventory of Federal STEM education programs.
