Planting the Seeds for a Diverse U.S. STEM Pipeline: A Compendium of Best Practice K-12 STEM Education Programs

Abstract

"The pre-college science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education programs showcased in this compendium share three key strengths. First, they inspire all students and grow the innate interest all kids have for these subjects, particularly girls and underrepresented minorities. Next, they provide positive, real-life individuals in STEM careers for students to get to know, and make the fields more accessible. Finally, they introduce students to the myriad career opportunities available for them in today's STEM fields.
Equally important, these best practice STEM education programs demonstrate the power and effectiveness of public-private partnerships to improve education and bolster student achievement. We hope that by using this compendium as a guide, similar types of partnerships involving K-12 education, higher education, industry and government will be further explored, encouraged and expanded."
