Based in Ohio, the Teaching Institute for Excellence in STEM (TIES) website "bring[s] STEM School design, STEM curriculum, and STEM instructional support to schools, districts, states, and the federal government". Since implementing STEM goals and seeing results can be a difficult prospect schools face, one of the innovative programs being tried by TIES is under the "Learn and Earn Challenge" tab on the menu across the top of the page. Visitors will see that students engage in apprenticeships that pay them a living wage while earning credentials. The list of grants given for such programs are highlighted, as well as news of grants recently given, such as to Arizona, for encouraging rural engineers, and to the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) from IBM, to make UMES' engineers competitive in the engineering job market. Visitors will find almost a dozen publications and various resources dealing with the "Learn and Earn Challenge" near the bottom of the page.
