The Council report lists four pillars as necessary components to establish a system that will produce STEM-equipped students and educators. These pillars are: create a STEM culture, empower STEM teachers, integrate business and education, and ensure high quality STEM experiences. The work of the MiSTEM Network is to build on existing STEM networks to create a STEM ecosystem that supports and implements the components outlined in the four pillars.

The four pillars are as follows:
  1. Create a robust STEM culture

  2. Empower STEM teachers

  3. Integrate business and education into the STEM network

  4. Ensure high quality STEM experiences for pupils
