At a Glance: Regional directors are concentrated at the Intermediate Unit locations and all serve as STEM Consultants or Supervisors that communicate and collaborate with K-12 school systems in their territory daily. They will be overseeing communication to schools, and coordinating future collaborations/projects in their region when funding is accessible within the ecosystem.
