I SEE STEM Mission Statement

The Idaho South & East EcosySTEM works to engage partners from our regions (preK-12, higher education, informal education, and industry) to achieve coordination, collaboration, equity and inclusion for all.

As a regional alliance of the Idaho STEM EcosySTEM, I SEE STEM strives to support the state vision and our regional mission through the following:


Connect and build sustainable, mutually beneficial networks devoted to moving STEM forward for all Idahoans.

Create vibrant communication channels so that we have a better idea of what other regional partners are doing in real time helping us be more efficient and not duplicating efforts.

Working Groups  (OARS) propel the goals into action

Opportunities for Access – Survey available opportunities and improve equitable accessibility.

Awareness - Raise awareness of STEM careers, educational pathways, resources, learning opportunities, and our I SEE STEM efforts.

Resource Assessment – Determine stakeholder capabilities, identify current offerings, and foster productive partnerships.

Steering - Set goals, create governance structure, initiate funding efforts, and regulate expenditures.
