Center of Excellence

Building educator's capacity to provide innovative, equity-based STEM learning opportunities

What We Do

The Center of Excellence was founded in 2014 to build the capacity of educators to deliver equity-focused STEM programming. We work directly with school districts, communities, and classroom teachers, and out-of-school educators to scale best-in-class STEM learning opportunities to ensure all students have access to these transformative learning opportunities.

To accomplish our mission, we conduct our work through a variety of projects, including professional development workshops for educators, workshops for the community, centralizing training resources in a learning hub, and catalyzing community conversations to elevate the voice of STEM educators.
