STEM in Minnesota Work, advance, and innovate

Occupations requiring STEM knowledge are among the fastest-growing and higher-paying careers in Minnesota. Projections of STEM workers needed in the coming decade help us monitor whether we are on track to fill employment needs. STEM-literate workers are critical to Minnesota's knowledge-based workforce. Our continued advancement as a state requires workers with the ability to innovate, solve complex challenges, and flourish in an environment with rapidly changing technology. Ensuring all students are equipped for our future workforce requires development of STEM skills and interest from the early years and along the continuum of learning through mid-career. This project was developed to better understand the state of Minnesota's STEM continuum and to help target resources most effectively. Working with an advisory group, Minnesota Compass and Boston Scientific developed a cohesive framework for monitoring and supporting Minnesota's STEM cradle-to-career continuum to answer: How does Minnesota fare on key measures of STEM success from PreK-mid career? What are best practices for supporting these measures? Are we making progress over time? The site will be updated as new data and resources become available. Frequency for key measure updates depends on the data source. In the future, key measures will be trended over time where possible to facilitate progress-monitoring. Check the “What’s New” page for the latest site updates.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
