The Greater Austin STEM Ecosystem:
To amplify individual organizations and their collective impact, the Greater Austin STEM Ecosystem was designed to be a connector and coordinator of Networks. It is learning-centered and fosters deeper collaboration across networks and systems. This leverages resources supporting STEM education while reducing duplication and ensures STEM programming is accessible to ALL students throughout Greater Austin.
The STEM Learning Ecosystems initiative empowers 56 communities across the country to bring together local stakeholders across education, science and business sectors and create systemic change to ensure more students, particularly underserved and underrepresented students, develop the STEM knowledge and skills they need to learn and thrive in today’s world. Austin represents the sole STEM Learning Ecosystem community in Texas.
Austin is one of 27 cities nationally...the work is just beginning...we want to build out the infrastructure of the ecosystem--in other words, build strong "connective tissue" between and among the many robust STEM learning opportunities and organizations already working in the Greater Austin Area.
