|2015 marks amazing growth and opportunities in the realm of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) for our region’s teachers and students. As the Olympic STEM Pathways Partnership (OSPP) launches with energy and ingenuity, the momentum continues to build with collaborative gatherings of local Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas’ scientists, educators, and business leaders. The OESD has been awarded a grant in the amount of $600,000 (2015-2018) through The Mathematics and Science Partnership Program (MSP), Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, which supports the improvement of mathematics and science instruction and learning through partnerships between school districts, institutions of higher learning, ESDs and educational organizations.
