BoSTEM Community of Practice (CoP) Coordinator
BoSTEM is a coalition of high-performing nonprofits and a growing list of local corporations who are committing time, expertise and resources to close gaps in STEM learning and inspire and prepare Boston youth to succeed in 21st century careers. BoSTEM believes that STEM learning can happen anywhere-- at the zoo, in a community center, through interaction with an adult mentor, or during a workplace visit. By building the capacity of Boston’s cultural and research institutions, companies, and out-of-school time educational programs to provide opportunities for students to practice STEM, BoSTEM will create more opportunities for Boston’s middle school youth to authentically engage in STEM. Building on research and existing strategies in Boston for closing the opportunity gap, BoSTEM is cultivating a learning ecosystem that connects students to opportunities to practice STEM and critical social emotional skills outside the classroom, as well as develop a real-world context for the concepts they learn in school, with the goal of connecting 10,000 middle school students with such opportunities annually by the year 2020.
