Established in 2003, the Initiative is a statewide partnership between private sector, K-12, higher education and state and federal government created to grow Kentucky-based STEM research commercialization and innovation, education and workforce development. Dataseam supports the DataseamGrid, a proprietary, statewide research computing infrastructure and directs activity to recruit and prepare a knowledge-based workforce for Kentucky.
Benefit to Schools
Schools earn computers through the development of their local technology workforce. These computers support advanced curriculum opportunities schools engage to better prepare its students for 21st century opportunity. Not only do these computers meet instructional demand, but they also provide a vital infrastructure piece for the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s life-saving cancer research and drug discovery.
Our partner universities, University of Louisville and Morehead State University, have provided over $2.2 million college scholarships to students from Dataseam-participating K-12 schools. Dataseam also works with and supports the Governor School for Entrepreneurs, and Governor School for Entrepreneurs.
