The NC STEM ScoreCard serves as a tool to help  public and decision makers chart a direction for the state’s STEM-related economic future.

The ScoreCard is an element of the North Carolina STEM Strategy, a comprehensive policy framework adopted by the NC State Board of Education in 2011 to advance STEM education in a systematic, measurable manner.
