STEM Ecosystems in Pennsylvania

STEM Ecosystems are nationally-recognized by the STEM Funders Network (SFN) - a diverse group comprised of more than 20 education-focused private and corporate foundations working together to increase awareness about STEM.

Pennsylvania has six STEM Ecosystems, that provide the architecture for cross-sector learning, offer access to STEM-rich learning environments to boost engagement in science, technology, engineering and math throughout preK-16.

“There are abundant opportunities available for careers in STEM fields, and we know that students interested in these fields deserve access to training programs and cooperatives that can help them develop needed skills and knowledge. These regional ecosystems bring STEM education to communities across the commonwealth, providing students from all areas with the resources and tools they need to pursue an interest in science and technology.” - Secretary of Education Pedro A. Rivera
