As Ecosystems, we have to be willing to fail fast, fail forward & fail often. In the Bay Area, we’ve made a number of attempts to “move the needle on STEM education” that haven’t worked. I’d love to get a few brave souls to share their failures, along with mine, in the hope that our National counterparts learn from our examples.
We’d love to organize a flash talk, a number of different Ecosystems speaking on various initiates that haven’t worked for about 3 slides / 5 mins each. Any subjects welcome!
Many thanks for your bravery in coming forward with me 🙂

I like this idea quite a bit. I’m a veteran at failing many more times than being successful, but proof that you can live below the Mendoza line on grants, projects and efforts and still be considered “successful”.
As Churchill said “never give up”.
So, count me in. And if you don’t know what the Mendoza line is, it’s got a good Wikipedia page!
