I wanted to make sure you’d all had an opportunity to see our latest STEM Educators Academy research brief. It explains how a cross-sector collaboration between a schools, community partners, and science-rich cultural institutions led to high-quality learning settings for young people and powerful professional development opportunities for science teachers and informal educators alike. The brief offers areas for growth as our collaboration expands in New York City. We were lucky to have the Frameworks Institute read a draft of the brief and help frame it for maximum engagement—their materials on communicating STEM messages are terrific.
Please let me know if you find the brief helpful or are considering setting up a similar model in your community!
