Our commitment to education, written into the will of our founder, runs deep at Battelle. We partner with communities, states, educators, national laboratories and industry leaders to promote innovative and effective Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education. We support programs that grow our future STEM workforce and prepare today’s students to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
Battelle’s STEM education initiatives are grounded in four integrated learning priorities: Standards of Excellence, STEM Learning Networks, Workforce Development and Education Innovation. We focus on developing and spreading innovative STEM education practices and leveraging state-based STEM learning networks.
With our nationwide network of offices and labs, Battelle is uniquely positioned to impact STEM education and link educational initiatives to workforce needs.
National Laboratories: Each of the eight laboratories that Battelle manages or co-manages supports innovative STEM programs in their communities.
Regional Offices: Battelle’s 100+ regional offices work to advance STEM with education programs and scholarships in their local areas.
STEMx: A nationwide network of state STEM organizations, STEMx is working to transform science, technology, engineering and math education at the grassroots level. Managed by Battelle, STEMx connects leading state STEM organizations to one another, leveraging their strengths for maximum impact.
New technologies and teaching methods have tremendous potential to better prepare students for college and career in today’s knowledge economy. Education innovators are demonstrating success by integrating new technologies, exploring new ways of structuring their schedules, and providing students with early college experiences.
We take such innovative teaching methods to scale—from one classroom to our nationwide network. In doing so, we are making high-quality STEM education available to all.
We work with partners at the federal, state and local level to establish and promote high-quality teaching and learning standards. Our network of regional offices, national labs and state STEM organizations allows us to deepen our impact by spreading and aligning these programs and practices across the country.
State-based STEM networks connect the best STEM schools, educators and teachers to each other, so they can share best practices and maximize their nationwide impact. Battelle manages two state STEM networks, the Ohio STEM Learning Network (OSLN) and the Tennessee STEM Innovation Network (TSIN), as well as the country’s only multi-state STEM network, STEMx. Thanks in part to support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Battelle continues to provide guidance and funding to grow network infrastructures across the country, including established networks in California and New York and emerging networks in Colorado and Kentucky.
We hire tens of thousands of scientists and engineers to work on national applied research and development projects. This gives us a deep, practical perspective to STEM workforce development. We create industry and education partnerships that identify and solve STEM workforce challenges.
