Students in northern New Mexico lack accessible, available, and equitable opportunities for STEM education compared to the rest of the country. The goal of this project was to assist the Northern New Mexico STEAM Coalition in the procurement and analysis of STEM course data to create a baseline understanding of the factors that can hinder students from receiving such an education. Our findings show that factors such as inexperienced educators and limited access to STEM course offerings have led to low proficiency rates in math and science, and that these factors have only been exacerbated by the pandemic, which has also created additional barriers. Our deliverables included an assessment framework, a website, and a survey to evaluate informal STEM programs.
