Finger Lakes STEM Hub

The Finger Lakes STEM Hub is a network of approximately 125 K-12 and college educators, community organizations, businesses, family and youth providers, advocacy groups, policymakers, researchers, and funders. It serves as a catalyst for collaboration and communication among diverse partners to promote quality STEM education and career exploration opportunities for youth to make them college and career ready. Membership in the network is free.

The Hub covers a nine-county region in the Greater Rochester Area and Finger Lakes Region, that includes Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates Counties. It is a regional hub affiliated with SUNY’s Empire State STEM Learning Network and the STEMx national network. The FLX STEM Hub was founded in 2007 as a project of the Rochester Area Colleges.

A STRATEGIC PLAN was adopted for 2018-2022. Its three priority areas focus on youth and drive the Hub’s actions through professional learning of educators, community awareness to facilitate active engagement with STEM, and impactful partnerships to advance solutions to regional STEM challenges. We have several different programs and initiatives, these can be found by visiting our programs page. Want to learn even more about the STEM Hub?  Check out the attachments below for our documents!
