Network: Tennessee STEM Innovation Network (TSIN)

Purpose: The Design Principles were developed to provide a framework to consider when structuring new STEM schools.

Usage: The Design Principles have been used to guide the opening of ten platform schools across Tennessee. More info on the schools: http://thetsin.org/contact/

Impacts: Along with being used to guide the development of 10 STEM platform schools across the state, the Design Principles have been used to inform the vision of quality STEM education in K-12 schools across the state.

Prior research or grounding: The Design Principles are based on the Metro School model in Ohio and integrated into the TSIN’s STEM platform schools across the state.
