Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM)

The Renton School Foundation provides STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) funding throughout the District to further enrich cocurricular and extra-curricular programs that provide rich and valuable learning opportunities for students in STEM related fields.
