Founded in 2008, the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Industry Council (SInC) supports the development of future STEM professionals from Columbus City Schools through beneficial programming and job placement opportunities. The opportunities provided build pathways to post-secondary education and expose students to emerging career opportunities in STEM-based fields. Looking to take part in our programming?

“My internship experience was even better than I expected. Working with Drive Ohio on launching the smart mobility program was amazing. I was able to give my input as a high school student to help better the program. The internship didn’t feel like work because I was very interested in the topic and program they are launching.”
In 2008, we started with just 2 students. Today we have supported 126 students through our Project Lead the Way (PLTW) program, a multi-faceted approach to develop the next generation of STEM professionals. Students participants have gone on to collectively receive $100,000+ in scholarships to study in STEM-based majors at The Ohio State University, Case Western Reserve University, the University of Toldeo, and Columbus State Community College.
