GOALS

  • Develop a strong network of academic, business, and community partners who are invested in providing opportunities for school-aged children in Tampa Bay that is both effective and sustainable.

  • Support excellence in STEM teaching. Increase the number of historically underrepresented young people in STEM pathways.

  • Engage parents in the Tampa Bay community through effective communication, parent-centric events, workshops, and other means to become familiar with the STEM field and to support their children in STEM education and STEM career pathways.

  • Create diverse conduits of access to intersecting STEM experiences for school-aged youth through out-of-school time experiences.

WHEN IT COMES TO STEM LEARNING, HOW CAN WE HELP ALL YOUNG PEOPLE REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL?

STEM Learning Ecosystems provide the architecture for cross-sector learning, offering all young people access to STEM-rich learning environments so they can develop important skills and engagement in science, technology, engineering, and math throughout Pre K-16.

Strong STEM Learning Ecosystems feature dynamic collaborations among schools, out-of-school time programs, STEM expert institutions (such as museums, science centers, institutions of higher education and STEM professional associations), the private sector, community-based organizations, youth, and families.
