We keep busy.

We are passionate about our mission – and we’re excited to share all the great work we and our partners are doing to achieve it. Keep tabs on this space to stay up-to-date on the latest 100Kin10 happenings and announcements.

People are noticing.

We aren’t about tooting our own horn. But, we are dedicated to spreading the word about the great work of our partners and keeping STEM education front and center on the national stage. These media mentions feature 100Kin10 and our partners as we seek to provide all American classrooms with great STEM teachers.

Partners fuel this work.

100Kin10 partners use hard work, ingenuity, and a collaborative spirit to ensure that all students have access to the STEM learning that they—and our country—need and deserve. These stories are meant to give you an insider-look into how our partners use 100Kin10 to reach their above-and-beyond commitment and move the needle to overcome the big, system-level challenges that make this work so difficult.

We are making progress

Training 100,000 excellent STEM teachers in 10 years and making progress on the reasons for the persistent STEM teacher shortage is an audacious goal. With our bird’s-eye-view as the hub of the network working to achieve it, we have a unique opportunity to discern and amplify key trends in STEM education. Those insights, and updates on progress of the network as a whole, are all collected here.
