Our Story

Newton’s Road works with regional partners to champion, support and increase access to outstanding learning and career opportunities for our youth in the interrelated fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

​We believe that celebrating and investing in STEM learning excellence from an early age is essential to the ability for more of our children to live, work and raise their families locally and for them to thrive in the rapidly evolving global economy wherever they live. Today more than ever, it is critical that we work together as a community to coordinate regional resources for their benefit and the benefit of the overall economic outlook for our region.
