Science Foundation Arizona (SFAz), a nonprofit public-private partnership, joined with partners Tuesday to announce the launch of the Arizona STEM Network. The STEM Network is a “strategic effort” to help transform Arizona’s educational system for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

A five-year plan being led by SFAz will focus on bringing effective education practices and teaching advances into Arizona classrooms, including the state-adopted, internationally benchmarked Common Core Standards.

Since 2008, the Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Foundation has been the leading financial supporter, providing a total of $2.2 million for the establishment of SFAz’s STEM initiative. Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Foundation announced a new, three-year commitment beginning in 2012 totaling $2.1 million.
