Stem Ecosystems

Every young person should have access to rich, connected learning opportunities

What if we tried a new strategy to ensure all young people reach their potential in STEM?

Learn about the STEM Learning Ecosystems Community of Practice and the 111 communities across the globe demonstrating strong cross-sector collaborations to make this reality.

Launched in Denver in 2015 at an international global conference, the STEM Learning Ecosystems is a Global Community of Practice with extensive sharing of resources and expertise among leaders from education, business and industry, non-profits, philanthropy and others.

The 100+ communities selected from across the world compose a global Community of Practice and have demonstrated cross-sector collaborations to deliver rigorous, effective preK-16 instruction in STEM learning. These collaborations happen in schools and beyond the classroom—in afterschool and summer programs, at home, in science centers, libraries and other places – both virtual and physical. They spark young people’s engagement, develop their knowledge, strengthen their persistence and nurture their sense of identity and belonging in STEM disciplines. Students connected to ecosystems and the pathways they create are intended to be able to connect what they learn in and out-of-school with real-world learning opportunities, leading to STEM-related careers and opportunities.
