This document presents the Federal Government’s five-year strategic plan for STEM education, based on a vision for
a future where all Americans will have lifelong access to high-quality STEM education and the United States will be
the global leader in STEM literacy, innovation, and employment. The plan accordingly strengthens the Federal
commitment to equity and diversity, to evidence-based practice, and to engagement with the national STEM
community through a nationwide collaboration with learners, families, educators, communities, and employers.
Beyond guiding Federal activities and investments, it is intended to serve as a “North Star” for the broader
community to help achieve the goals, pathways, and objectives within this plan.
