Cascade STEAM is a newly forming nonprofit organization dedicated to improving STEAM Education, Career Connected Learning, Digital Literacy, and Digital Equity for all people of all ages.

STEAM is an acronym for the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. STEAM education is a powerful framework to promote curiosity and creativity, encourage a shared learning experience, and build tools to solve important life challenges. We advocate through development and promotion of events, activities, and programs, and invite collaboration with community partners in shared purpose.


Develop and promote STEAM Education, Career Connected Learning, Digital Literacy, and Digital Equity for all people of all ages.


Community Function

In alignment with organization purpose, mission, and values, we will facilitate engagement with the community to:


Functions via Board, Committees, and (future) Staff. Staff is vacant or volunteer until the organization establishes adequate funding. Board and Committee expansion is via invitation from the Board President upon Board approval.

Board Officers

Board Composition

The Board is to be composed of diverse individuals representing (1) science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics, (2) education, (3) industry, (4) local government, and (5) community interests.

Board Terms

Board Members serve in a volunteer capacity indefinitely, until either resignation or dismissal. All official Board activity will be delivered in writing, including invitation, acceptance, resignation, and dismissal.


Committees assist in creation and management of core organization tasks. Committees are designed to be led by a board member, and be composed of board members, (future) staff, and community members. Objectives are determined by agreement between the Board and each respective Committee. Input and participation from the community is incredibly important to ensure alignment of community interests.
