The Tennessee STEM School Designation was developed to provide a “roadmap” for schools to successfully implement a STEM education plan at the local level. The tools and resources created define the attributes necessary for a school to create a comprehensive STEM learning environment for its students.

A school that receives Tennessee STEM School Designation will be recognized by the Tennessee Department of Education for its use of STEM teaching and learning strategies and serve as a model from which other schools may visit and learn.
