IALR is committed to expanding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) capacity across Southern Virginia. We work with partners to ensure that students learn STEM concepts – and how those concepts relate to career opportunities – starting at a young age.
We do this through a variety of experiential educational programs, dual-enrollment opportunities, tutoring programs and summer activities.
Our mission is economic transformation. Improving STEM capacity for students of all ages enhances the workforce and results in an increase in quality job opportunities across our region.
