The Omaha STEM Ecosystem was launched in 2016 to address the overwhelming shortfall of current and future STEM professionals in Omaha and across Nebraska.
As we celebrate our 5th Anniversary in June, we remain committed to:

  • Building a strong infrastructure and capacity to support mission impact.
  • Advocating for programs and innovative models.
  • Expanding evidence-driven research, assessments and outcomes.
  • Engaging community through communication, collaboration and connection.
  • Diversifying funding to assure financial sustainability.
  • Growing community development, recruitment and retention.

Help Create a Robust STEM Community with the STEM Community Platform

Do you have an upcoming event or resource to share with the community?
Create an account on our new STEM Community Platform, www.stemplatform.org, to share the information with students, parents and educators. This is a one-stop-shop for STEM resources and career exploration.

Facebook Community Action Grant
We are delighted to announce the Omaha STEM Ecosystem has received Facebook Community Action Grant funds that will help us develop the STEM Community Platform for years to come, so students can build the critical skills they need for high-demand careers of the future. The grant funding also will help us reach underserved students throughout the community. Learn more by watching our new video.
