According to the Associated Press, a new website has been created in northeast Tennessee to support and share best practices in science, technology, engineering and mathematics education.

The subjects, known by the acronym STEM, are getting increased attention in K-12 schools in Tennessee.

East Tennessee State University and the Tennessee STEM Innovation Network will be collecting and sharing the education advice on the website with 15 northeast Tennessee public school systems.

Dr. Jack Rhoton of ETSU said the goal is to engage students, develop a skilled workforce and increase STEM literacy in the region.

The site includes links for students and parents to learn more about science, technology, engineering and math and information for educators who want STEM training.
