Company and organization profiles: One of STEMConnector's most useful resources will be its searchable database of 3,500 profiles of STEM education organizations, corporate outreach programs, and government STEM programs.
State-by-state Report Cards: STEMConnector will feature profiles of each state's STEM initiatives, performance, and career programs, based on 58 different data points assembled with Innovate+Educate, another U.S. News partner.
Best Organizations for females & minorities in STEM: The site will feature profiles of 143 organizations that offer STEM programs to women and 147 organizations that focus on diversity in STEM.
Latest education rankings: You'll find the U.S. News rankings of the top 200 Best High Schools for Math and Science, as well as rankings of the best four-year and two-year colleges for Hispanics interested in STEM, with plenty more rankings to come.
Most scalable programs: Plenty of teachers and programs see positive results in one or two classrooms, but America needs programs that are cheap and replicable in many environments. The site will feature a list of the most scalable STEM programs, including FIRST Robotics and Project Lead the Way.
