STEM Learning Ecosystems

A STEM learning ecosystem encompasses schools, community settings such as after-school and summer programs, science centers and museums, and informal experiences at home and in a variety of environments that together constitute a rich array of learning opportunities for young people. The STEM Learning Ecosystems seek to nurture collaboration among a variety of partners with the same goal: helping students develop important skills and engagement in science, technology, engineering and math. Being a member of this initiative enables STEM SENC to connect with other ecosystems in the U.S. and abroad to improve education in science, technology, engineering and math.
