This chapter addresses the process of developing programs that integrate STEM content through partnerships between multiple education sectors. STEM partnerships include at least two STEM disciplines and at least two institutions involved in program development and implementation. The first part of the chapter isolates three key decision points: outcome goals, partners, and STEM topics, and tackles each through multiple models for how disciplines are integrated, and models for how institutions coordinate their work together. We illustrate the varied ways these models work together with examples of STEM partnerships in practice and close by discussing how partnerships form and evolve.
