STEM SENC Selected to Join Global STEM Learning Ecosystems Community of Practice

Wednesday, June 06, 2018

STEM SENC (Southeastern North Carolina) has been selected to join the STEM Learning Ecosystems Community of Practice, SLECOP, an initiative to improve education in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). STEM SENC will now connect with 67 other Ecosystems in the U.S. and abroad.

The Watson College of Education’s new STEM Learning Cooperative made the application on behalf of its many partners throughout the southeastern region of the state. All of the partners who support STEM SENC are working to engage students in real-world STEM opportunities that align with future career opportunities in the region.

Students must have quality, applicable STEM education to enable them to thrive in today’s world. STEM SENC’s work is grounded in an understanding that jobs in STEM careers are growing rapidly and that the national average wage for STEM-related occupations is nearly double that of non-STEM careers.
