The Northeast Ohio STEM Learning Ecosystem is building on a positive momentum of change we see in Cleveland and its surrounding region. Our ecosystem is an emerging practice but we are building upon a number of successful education collaborations. Our committed ecosystem partners includes schools, corporations, non-profit start ups, afterschool providers, local funders, universities, and STEM-expert organizations such as science centers and other types of museums. We recognize the need to address a set of pressing questions that will refine the make up and goals of our effort. Most of all, we share a belief in the resilience of our community and the great need for equitable access to high-quality STEM experiences for all learners.
