The Chicago STEM Pathways Cooperative
is a collaborative effort aimed at increasing youth and family access to quality STEM experiences in both formal and informal settings, from cradle to career.
We Believe that
Young people need meaningful experiences with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in order to become critical and collaborative thinkers.
Without an intentional plan for how young people will get – and stay – involved with STEM, the status quo will remain the same.
We can’t do it alone
Are we educating students to truly complete globally in the world of tomorrow’s technology?
Positions in STEM fields today are growing as a percentage of total employment
Skills built through STEM education are increasingly needed for success regardless of field
Real learning takes place 24/7, cradle to grave.
Only small percentage occurs inside of school during the K-12 years.
