STEM to STEAM! Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics are key components of education. Integrating literacy, communication, analytical, technical, and collaborative skills with STEAM will translate to the job market and prepare students for success. Students sitting in classrooms today are the leaders and innovators of tomorrow. Let's meet the demands of the 21st Century and prepare the next generation.
Our Mission: Intregrate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math throughout the curriculum to prepare students for success in the global community.
Our Vision: STEM education for every student!

Skype a Scientist matches scientists with classrooms around the world! Scientists will skype into the classroom for 30-60 minute Q and A sessions that can cover the scientist's expertise or what it's like to be a scientist. We want to give students the opportunity to get to know a "real scientist", and this program allows us to reach students from all over the world without having to leave the lab! We have over 2000 scientists ready to chat, and teachers can choose the type of scientist that will fit their classroom.

Red Mountain High School Partners with ASU's Department of Psychology
The RISE Initiative (Research Intensive Scientific Experience) "works with high school students to identify their interests, match them with a professor and laboratory in the psychology department, and allow students to perform research. Students complete a senior capstone project, including a presentation of their data, while getting hands-on laboratory experience before starting college.
"In the Bimonte-Nelson lab, the RISE student researchers have many tasks, but the most important ones are to score, process, and analyze behavioral data. These student researchers also learn about the scientific method, about experimental design, and how to use computer programs that support research. In addition, they assist the undergraduate and graduate student researchers with many "wet laboratory" tasks, like mixing liquids and preparing solutions used for biochemistry-involved behavioral experiments."
