About the Coalition

At Triangle Coalition for STEM Education, we are passionate about improving science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education for all students. Since 1985, Triangle Coalition, a 501c (3) nonprofit organization, has worked in conjunction with its members to lead the nation in advocating for better STEM education.Triangle Coalition Annual Conference

Headquartered in the Washington, D.C. metro area, the Triangle Coalition is comprised of member organizations that represent a wide range of businesses, education alliances, nonprofit organizations, and STEM societies from across the nation. While broad in scope, our members all share a common interest in furthering STEM education in the United States.

We focus our actions in three major areas: communication, advocacy, and programmatic efforts to advance STEM education for all students.

  • Communication: We help members stay informed on legislative activities, innovative education programs, resources, and other news items related to STEM education.
  • Advocacy: We help to inform Congress, as well as our members, on education policy issues and the impacts on STEM education. Triangle Coalition members have a powerful voice in the public policy arena and are notified of action opportunities.
  • Programs: We provide programs and opportunities that enable STEM stakeholders to come together to discuss STEM education issues. Triangle Coalition also facilitates the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship Program to involve K-12 teachers in the national discussions on education.

Triangle Coalition for STEM Education proudly administers the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship Program on behalf of the Department of Energy in partnership with other participating federal agencies. The federally authorized Einstein Fellowship Program provides a unique professional development opportunity for educators to inform national policy and improve communication between the K-12 STEM education community and national leaders. Fellows spend eleven months working in a federal agency or in a U.S. Congressional office, bringing extensive knowledge and classroom experience to education programs and policy efforts.
