For nearly 20 years, the EDC Partners have operated a successful STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) initiative in collaboration with public and private schools and local business and civic leaders. The goal has been to engage all local students with STEM activities, training and career opportunities.

This has resulted in more than 100 Robotics teams in the community, the popularity of STEM summer camps, coding projects for K-12 students, educator immersion programs in tech settings and the Annual STEM Student Recognition Breakfast and Awards.

Leading many of these efforts has been the active members of the EDC Partners Education Committee. Working together in St. Charles County, we are preparing the next generation of workforce and leadership by providing the tools and resources necessary for them to gain the skills for jobs that don’t even exist today.
