Bay Area STEM Ecosystem

Sonoma, San Mateo, and San Francisco counties

Bay Area STEM Ecosystem logo


Students, teachers, and families in Sonoma, San Mateo, and San Francisco counties. Through our partnerships with the East Bay STEM Network and R5 STEAM Ecosystem we serve students, teachers, and families Santa Clara, Marin, Contra Costa, Alameda, Napa, and Solano counties.

The Bay Area STEM Ecosystem is participating in the NSF funded STEM PUSH Network to leverage pre-college programs to broaden participation in STEM. In addition, we are collaborating with the East Bay STEM Ecosystem and Region 5 STEAM to support a regional approach to increasing access to and increasing the quality of STEM education in the San Francisco Bay Area. In addition, the Bay Area STEM Ecosystem is participating in a 100Kin10 Project Team to develop a regional marketing campaign to recruit and retain diverse STEM teachers.

The Ecosystem meets three times a year and conducts its work throughout the year and between meetings. Our partners develop relationships and collaborative projects that serve the needs of students, families, and educators.
