LEAD STEM Highlights



The inaugural Cohort of 21 LEAD STEM Fellows from across 19 STEM Learning Ecosystems came together for their third in-person meeting in Washington, DC, in advance of the Community of Practice.

This dynamic group of STEM leaders is building STEM momentum which is leading to measurable outcomes for each of them individually as professionals, for their local communities through capstone projects, and through building a national network of STEM leaders determined to move the needle in STEM across the broader STEM Learning Ecosystem.
