Dear STEM Investors and Friends:


Due to Labor Day in September and a variety of scheduling challenges, we are cancelling our September meeting and instead planning for October. Instead of our usual first Monday in October, we will hold our October meeting on Thursday October 2nd at 7:30 am at Zions Bank downtown 18th floor.


Fall is in the air and it is back to school which means that STEM education is again in full swing. More and more Utah schools are implementing STEM practices and expanding their STEM offerings. Tami Goetz and her team at the STEM Action Center are working with those involved in education to do great things. You can contact Tami at


Here are some immediate activities to think about:


The STEM Soccer Cup 2014

When: Monday, September 22nd

Where: Rio Tinto Stadium

What: This is a STEM Utah event in collaboration with the STEM Action Center and Utah Technology Council to benefit Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education in Utah. Major event sponsors include Real Salt Lake, Goldman Sachs, IM Flash and more.

Needs: We can accommodate only 4 more teams so respond today for your team, but sponsorships still exist for referee sponsors, refreshments sponsors, and goal sponsors. For more information, email


Our Statewide STEM assembly will take place in early October. We will give you a preview at our October 2nd meeting and as soon as we set a date/time, we want you to get the assembly on your C level executive’s schedule. Stay tuned.


A new round of television commercials are now being shown with more frequency now that school has begun. If you watch football, you saw them last night during the U of U game and tonight during the BYU game. We have now finished commercials for over a dozen organizations and while biased, I think they are very well done. Thank you to Mark Hurst and Brent Petersen.


And for March, we are still planning for STEM Fest 2015. In the following link, we have listed a ton of ways for you to participate. Please take the time to fill it out along with your comments and submit. Think about influencing thousands and tens of thousands Junior High and High School students. We need your feedback!


As always, you can contact me at 801-368-2166 or with any questions.


At your service.
