The STEM Funders STEM Learning Ecosystem: Lessons Learned as We Launch Year Three
For the past two years, the STEM Funders Network has been cultivating STEM Learning Ecosystems in almost 40 communities around the country. The session will provide rich information on successes achieved and challenges encountered. The STEM Funders will also be using the session to share an updated model on how any community, regardless of size or challenge, can build a successful STEM ecosystem, to reframe how students learn, how teachers teach, and how workforce pipelines with STEM-skilled individuals can be built and sustained. They will also use this session to announce Year 3 communities accepted into their multi-year initiative, whose goal is to build these cross-collaborative STEM learning platforms in more than 100 cities by 2020.
