About Us

Now and in the years ahead, many of the fastest-growing industries across the state and the nation will require a pool of highly-trained individuals capable in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)

The Capital Region STEM Hub is designed to cultivate the physical and financial resources needed to engage young people in STEM education and programs—preparing them for success in school, work and life, and fueling the innovation and economic vitality of our region, state and nation.

The eight-county Capital Region (Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Warren and Washington counties) is at the forefront of New York’s economy—ranking high in both productivity and patenting. It is also the middle of a major geographic region, with New York City, Boston and Montréal each just three hours away by car.

Capital Region employers readily tap into our research & development  centers , and the skilled and talented students from our Career and Technical education schools and dozens of colleges and universities.
