About ASSET STEM Education

ASSET STEM Education is a national Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education improvement nonprofit established by Bayer Corporation and several community partners in 1994. It fosters STEM fluency and college/career readiness by providing educators with highly effective professional development, hands-on educational materials and consulting services — impacting students pre-K through career. All of its programs are results oriented, research and inquiry based and align with national and state standards. ASSET's programs influence the lives of more than 7,000 teachers and 225,000 students across the nation.

ASSET represents Pennsylvania as part of Battelle's STEMx national network, a multi-state network with an imperative for action on STEM. STEMx is comprised of 19 member state networks, more than a third of the nation’s states, and currently impacts more than 8 million students nationwide. Additionally, ASSET’s Elementary Program met the rigorous criteria for inclusion in the Change the Equation STEMworks Database, a national database of evidence-based STEM programs. In 2010, ASSET was selected as one of the first-round recipients of a U.S. Department of Education Investing in Innovation Grant to validate its model in rural and high-needs schools. www.assetinc.org.

The District’s successes are the direct result of quality students, families and a most supportive community, as well as an exemplary teaching staff that has a strong commitment to their work and to their students. The District strives to continue this culture of excellence in education, with all stakeholders working together to move Norwin forward “from great…to EXTRAORDINARY.” www.norwinsd.org
