Gearing up for STEM Signing Day

We are excited to share a new opportunity, STEM Signing Day 2018 presented by Boeing, Greater Lakes Region-Chicago.

To continue supporting and motivating Chicago Public School students to pursue STEM education Boeing is kicking off the inugural STEM Signing Day!  This day will bring students from across the City to be recognized for their participation in STEM related activities throughout their high school career and be honored for their choice to pursue a STEM major in college.

Powered by the Chicago STEM Pathways Cooperative

Chicago has a wealth of STEM learning opportunities for youth, in classrooms and through out-of-school time experiences. However, challenges to access and equity continue to persist for young people – particularly those from communities traditionally underrepresented in the sciences. How can we work collaboratively to provide all Chicago youth with quality STEM experiences to support their academic, civic, and career development?  The Chicago STEM Pathways Cooperative is a community-driven initiative that works to address inequities in the STEM learning continuum. Our strength-based approach focuses on three critical areas: cross-sector knowledge building, collaboration, and collective action.
Affinity Groups are member-driven groups that bring together stakeholders around key areas of STEM learning. Affinity Groups are guided by three principles: 1.) Identifying best practices, in Chicago, nationally, or both; 2.) Understanding the pressing challenges in the field as they relate to inequity for Chicago youth; and 3.) Determining how collaborative work can address the equity challenges.
