TIME: 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM
Visit the Wild West and explore lessons learned from 6 statewide ecosystems in different stages of development. Examine benefits and challenges to leading STEM initiatives statewide, and the advantages and hurdles to developing regional hubs including funding, boundaries, rural outreach, accountability, and data collection and management. Discussions will include creative solutions to these challenges and how they could be modified for other states. Participants will leave with an action plan in hand!
Attendees are encouraged to bring at least one other member of your ecosystem to this session.
