Ensuring that every student can thrive in the regional STEM economy

Governor's MiSTEM Advisory Council

The Governor’s MiSTEM Advisory Council released our 2020 Annual Report. The Council has established three priorities for 2020-21 that will continue to move STEM forward in Michigan. These priorities are to be carried out through actions that empower STEM teachers and integrate education with business. 

  • Priority 1: Strengthen the Network (focus on equity)
  • Priority 2: Contribute to the COVID-19 Response 
  • Priority 3: Elevate Computer Science

Our work revolves around four pillars of STEM education:


Creating a STEM Culture

Integrating Business and Education

to provide authentic STEM experiences for students and teachers


Ensuring High-Quality STEM Experience

that promote the region’s STEM workforce

Due to Covid-19 this year’s Rouge River Water Festival is being held in a virtual format and is open to EVERYONE.

Head of the Freshwater Forum Michele Arquette-Palermo and Freshwater Education Coordinator Lizz Parkinson will go live on Facebook at 1pm each day of the festival. The Rouge River Water Festival is designed to help elementary students learn about our most precious natural resource – clean, fresh water. This free program will help students appreciate the importance of water and how it impacts their daily lives. It also provides students with hands-on activities to help them understand water resource-related topics including ecosystems, the geosphere and the hydrologic cycle.
