Alamo STEM Ecosystem
The Alamo STEM Ecosystem is a county wide Community of Practice with a commitment to provide STEM/STEAM experiences for all students with a focus on students traditionally underrepresented in STEM/STEAM. The Alamo STEM Ecosystem acts to cultivate a STEM/STEAM mindset with a focus on equity and innovation in our community by aligning and connecting efforts. Some of the current projects that the Alamo STEM Ecosystem has undertaken include Chief Science Officers (hosted by the Intercultural Development Research Association), increasing the number of 8th grade students who select the STEM Endorsement as they transition into high school, Boeing STEM Signing Day, STEM Professional Development Day, and a STEM Asset Map for the community. The Alamo STEM Ecosystem is organized into 18+ committees to enable collaboration within our COP. In a cross-border partnership, the Alamo STEM Ecosystem is partnering with Mexico’s Movimiento STEM on projects like Chief Science Officers and student exchange programs.
