Ventura County STEM’s partners at Naval Base Ventura County and, in particular, the Naval Expeditionary Warfare Center (EXWC/ NAVFAC), are interested in putting together a panel presentation by representatives of federal agencies who are active in STEM Ecosystems or ecosystems that partner with federal agencies. The panel would discuss high-impact practices for engaging federal agencies in their regional ecosystems. A draft abstract for the panel presentation is provided below by Carina Morgan.
If you are interested in serving on this panel as an educator who has successfully partnered with a federal organization or as a representative for a federal agency. We are looking for 3 – 4 individuals to partner with on submitting an E2E proposal.
Leveraging Federal Partnerships: Strategies for Increasing Effectiveness of STEM Education in the Classroom
There is a federal presence in every major city across the United States. Many federal agencies have education outreach initiatives for school age children. Carina Morgan, STEM Program Manager, U.S. Navy is proposing a panel discussion for educators and administrators on how to leverage federal partnerships to offer free or low-cost experiential learning opportunities and increase the impact of classroom curriculum. The panel will discuss successful partnerships, potential opportunities, and strategies for success.
Presidential Libraries offer free field trips and bus scholarships in order to teach social studies and civics often leveraging the latest in technological innovation to create immersive experiences for students. The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library often hosts students from the Interactive Media and Games Division of the USC Cinematic Arts school to dive into the design process of their latest simulation. The Naval Facilities Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center in Port Hueneme has a STEM outreach initiative designed to support STEM education (K-20) by giving students paid internships beginning in high school, offering research lab tours to school groups, purchasing classroom materials and funding community STEM programs, and offering professional development opportunities for educators. Federal agencies such as the Smithsonian, Treasury Department, NASA, the National Park Service, and many others support STEM education initiatives around the country and offer grants and learning opportunities for students, educators and administrators (especially those located in under-served communities). This workshop will help STEM networks leverage their local federal agencies in order to bolster their own learning initiatives.
