What is the Framework?

The Washington STEM Framework for Action and Accountability is a research-based tool that will spur greater coordination, smarter investments, and measurable results. Four logic models drive action around a common vision and goals, and lay out clear objectives linked to specific activities. Progress and impact will be measured using key indicators. Washington STEM led and launched the Washington STEM Framework for Action and Accountability in 2013 by engaging state and national STEM leaders in its development.
