The PEF Innovation Hub serves the region by providing K-12 educators with innovative opportunities to grow as instructional experts, teacher leaders, and community connectors. By uniting K-12 schools, colleges, nonprofits, and business partners in a cooperative effort, we help provide students access to experiences that will prepare them to thrive in the emerging ecosystem. Additionally, through creative regional, national, and international partnerships, we work to help elevate the teaching profession by providing teachers with unfettered access to learning and networking experiences that showcase their talent and passion for delivering a top-rate education.






The Tennessee STEM Innovation Network and the Public Education Foundation of Chattanooga created the STEM Innovation Hub to provide development, amplification, and leadership experiences for teachers, principals, parents, and staff from community organizations.

The Public Education Foundation serves as the managing partner of the Hub, acting as both the fiscal agent and driving force to create a center where teachers, principals, non-profit organizations, and leaders from business and industry work together to redesign how our children learn. The hub has emerged as an innovative entity that provides unique opportunities for stakeholders to identify and develop revolutionary educational strategies that help prepare students to thrive.
