Catalyst Initiative

HP Catalyst

Innovating approaches to STEM

Education in science, technology, engineering, math, computer science, and other high tech 21st century skills (STEM+) is key to social innovation and economic opportunity. HP launched the Catalyst Initiative to explore how technology can be used to create powerful STEM+ learning experiences -- and the new HP Catalyst Academy offers a rich range of mini-courses that will assist teachers in implementing these innovations.
