Authentic STEM Tool Kit

Authentic STEM Toolkit

Authentic STEM is an innovative pre-apprenticeship program designed to inspire and prepare students for careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through hands-on, authentic experiences. Developed in collaboration with a diverse group of partners including local Workforce Development Boards, businesses, educational institutions, and international organizations, the program aims to foster meaningful connections between students, teachers, schools, and industries.

The Toolkit below contains tools and recommendations will help local areas like yours to replicate the program, eliminate risk, and achieve success. This Toolkit is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Workforce Development Institute (WDI).

Below you will find web-accessible and PDF versions of each segment of our pre-program tools. Note: Many of the tools are password protected. If you are interested in accessing these files, please contact us and we’ll get you connected! Documents/pages indicated with an “*” do not require a password, and have important introductory information.
