Distinguishing the Region

The Mid-Columbia has much to gain from our growing reputation as a leader in STEM literacy. Talented young STEM professionals have cited our region’s proactive approach to STEM education as a key factor in their choice to relocate to the Tri-Cities. International business leaders have toured the region, Delta High and our higher-ed institutions, and made the same claim. Our region’s dedication to ensuring all young people experience STEM’s power and possibilities is paying off. And we are just getting started!


The Foundation drives STEM awareness through newspaper articles and ads, radio, TV, social media, newsletters, presentations, blog posts, and our website. Read the full Tri-City Herald article here.
