KC STEM Alliance, Kansas Enrichment Network, Mid-America Regional Council and Science Pioneers, serving as the lead agencies along with 23 other community STEM organizations and business partners, are responsible for engaging the community in the ecosySTEM KC initiative. They will gather additional STEM partners to work with students, educators and families in two urban school districts – Kansas City Public Schools and Kansas City Kansas Public Schools. Kansas City offers a vibrant, active and growing STEM community providing activities and educational opportunities across the area. Many STEM-related organizations already work together well, however a system-wide, seamless structure is yet to evolve. The ecosySTEM KC learning network provides opportunities to establish a clear vision, uniform collaboration and shared outcomes that can be replicated, sustained and be accessible by all youth.
