Online platform boosts Omaha-area STEM effort

Julie Sigmon, executive director of Omaha STEM Ecosystem and Nebraska Women in STEM committee member, authored an article published in the Omaha World-Herald about how the recently launched STEM Community Platform is helping to grow the STEM talent pipeline in Nebraska.

At Omaha STEM Ecosystem, we have been committed to transforming the greater Omaha area into a robust center of STEM excellence and innovation since the organization’s inception five years ago. We recently launched the STEM Community Platform, a community effort launched in partnership with AIM Institute and presented by Cox.

The platform is an online hub for high-quality STEM resources, including programs, events, career exploration tools and now internships. Internships are vital in the development of STEM skills for students in their career exploration.
