What is a STEM Learning Ecosytem?

A STEM Learning Ecosystem provides the architecture for cross-sector learning, offering all young people access to STEM-rich learning environments so they can develop important skills and engagement in science, technology, engineering, and math throughout preK-16.


Strong STEM Learning Ecosystems feature dynamic collaborations among schools, out-of-school programs, STEM expert institutions (such as museums, science centers, institutions of higher education, and STEM professional associations), the private sector, businesses, industries, corporations, community-based organizations, government agencies, youth, and families.
