Event description

Description

The Chicago STEM Pathways Cooperative will convene stakeholders in early childhood STEM education to discuss our shared interest and common goal in providing high quality STEM education to all Chicago youth. Through the affinity group, our goal is to develop a mini-symposium in Spring/Summer 2018 to share best practice, elevate the incredible work happening in our city's neighborhoods in early childhood STEM, and develop citywide priorities.

Agenda:

Our first meeting is in partnership with the Erikson Institute and will feature a presentation by Milton Chen.

8:30 - 10:30 am: Early STEM Matters with the TEC Center at Erikson Institute and Milton, Chen, PhD, Senior Fellow George Lucas Educational Foundation, Edutopia

10:30 am - 12 noon: Affinity Group meeting
