STEM Advisory Team at TAF Academy


Let’s hear it for the STEM Advisory Team at TAF Academy. This dedicated team meets four times during the school year to provide teachers with expertise and connections to resources related to the lessons teachers are working on.

“I found it REALLY helpful, and I’m even more excited for when I finally get to my unit on genetics,” said TAF Academy teacher Claudia Lemus about the group. “There’s definitely a lot of stuff I want to look up based on the ideas they were throwing out there.”

Some of the companies the STEM professionals work with include:

  • Exo Labs
  • Bungie
  • Institute for Systems Biology
  • Seattle BioMed
  • Highline Community College
  • Deloitte
  • Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
  • Microvision

Advisors must commit to attend at least two out of the four meetings, and must respond to email communication from teachers within 72 hours. Advisors are not expected to participate in other TAF Academy activities, but we welcome them anytime! To rsvp for the next meeting, contact

Future meeting dates:

  • Tuesday, February 5, 2013
  • Tuesday, April 16, 2013
