The STEM Opportunity Index, developed by the National Math and Science Initiative, SRI International and 100Kin10, looks at more than 100 public data sets and puts the results into an interactive map that compares how states are doing across 10 different conditions, practices and outcomes that demonstrate STEM success rates.
