What is a STEM Learning Ecosystem?
- A STEM ecosystem is a collection of organizations and individuals committed to developing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) related opportunities in their community.
- STEM ecosystems work to contribute to the development of an inquisitive, critical-thinking, and thriving population, aptly equipped to fulfill the workforce needs of the 21st century and a robust modern economy.
- STEM ecosystems magnify the collective impact of stakeholders through dialogue, collaboration and coordination of STEM educational outreach efforts to more efficiently, effectively, and equitably serve the community.
- STEM ecosystems were identified in a December 2018 federal report as the top strategy for improving STEM literacy, ensuring a strong workforce and global competitiveness for all, and an important means to support diversity, equity, and inclusion in a thriving STEM workforce.
