"We see a region where everyone can nurture their creative and critical thinking, where STEM supports social and emotional connections, and where the world looks to emulate LA’s model. We believe that it's through the coordination of resources afforded by an ecosystem, that we will fulfill our mission and see a Los Angeles full of joyful children and youth who are excited, confident and prepared to chart any future they want, affecting their own lives and the future of their communities and the world."
K-12 STEM CENTER & The LA Ecosystem
The K-12 STEM Center has a 45 year history of providing STEM Outreach in Los Angeles. In 2016, we reached beyond programming to support out of school time efforts throughout the greater Los Angeles Area. One of the first actions was continuing the decades old work of the Educational Consortium of Central Los Angeles by providing current information regarding Events and Educational Resources for schools and teachers in the Central Los Angeles Area. In the years following, the STEM Center joined the annual City of STEM, became a part of the LA STEM Hub, co-created the LAUSD STEAM Certification for schools, participated in in the Los Angeles County of Education’s STEAM Committee and most recently became a member of the of the LA Mayor’s Out of School Task Force. These efforts culminated in the STEM Center taking a leadership role in creating the LA STEM Collective, the STEM Ecosystem of Greater Los Angeles.
The following organizations are currently part of the LA STEM Collective:
