STEM & Industry Relations

Industry - Education connection

When industry members engage with K-12 and classroom teachers and students they help shape the future of the workforce.

It is never too early for students to start thinking about what they want to do as a future career. Engaging early helps youth see the connections between what they are learning in the classroom and how it connects to careers. Help shape Idaho's workforce!

The United Way of Southeast Idaho partnering with the College of Technology and other community organizations has developed a dashboard that can be used to connect industries that are interested in supporting K-12 education to educators that have specific needs.
