About this event

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education can give students tools to analyze, understand, and shape the world around them. A solid foundation in STEM also enables people to engage on broad-ranging issues, from environmental policy to criminal justice reform. However, not all students receive empowering K-12 STEM instruction. In Part 1 of this series, we will explore how local funding, policies, and environment interact to impact students’ educational experiences. In Part 2, we will discuss how STEM curricula can be designed to promote equity and justice in the classroom and beyond. Throughout both sessions, we will also provide advice and resources for people interested in getting involved in STEM education in their own communities.
