Why STEM Reports?

In 2009, STEM Reports started with a "What if?"


What if STEM industry were served by the voice of the STEM educator? What if an independent research company could publish primary research on STEM education that served as a conduit between STEM educators and multiple business and association partners?


We made it happen. Ellen Bialo and Jay Sivin-Kachala at IESD, Inc. joined STEM Reports in publishing the National Survey on STEM Education and the National Survey on Mobile Technology for K-12 Education. Together, with our list sponsor MCH Data, we found ways to develop research at a fraction of the cost of other reports on the market with actionable insights that STEM business partners could use to catapult their brands forward with speed and precision. Industry partners such as Amplify,, and Vernier Software & Technology stepped up to sponsor Educator Editions of the reports to make research available at no cost to STEM educators.
