Capital Area STEM Network


Program Overview

In 2020, The Louisiana Board of Regents created a nine-region, statewide Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (LaSTEM) network whereby multi-parish collectives expand access to STEM education and pave a way towards a more inclusive and equitable STEM workforce. LaSTEM aims to bridge the opportunity gap for underrepresented and underserved populations by having Regions collaborate, share information, and coordinate resources to foster connections with other networks and initiatives (as seen on the right). All while working in conjunction with the statewide LaSTEM Advisory Council.
