STEM schools can be engines of academic achievement and innovation. But how do you build them well? And build them to last.
In our next webinar, we’ll be joined by Dorothy Earle, Wes Hall, and Denise Devora. Each represent a state who’s published tools for building great STEM schools. All three tools have been certified by STEMx and were recently featured in our revamp of the STEMx website.

She further supports STEM education by collaborating on the development of tools to assess and guide STEM implementation. The tools highlight the key characteristics of highly effective STEM schools and provide users with a pathway for progress.
||Wes Hall, Director of the Tennessee STEM Innovation Network: Wes has a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s in Public Administration from University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He is a member of the university’s Young Alumni Council and serves on the Tennessee Department of Education’s STEM Leadership Council, the Personalized Learning Taskforce, and the board of Tennessee Scholars.
||Denise Devora, Deputy Director of Programs for the Educate Texas T-STEM initiative: Ms. Devora has more than 14 years of higher education experience and has worked in the private and public sector of universities and colleges.
