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
