A great deal of activity is taking place in order to support the completion of the STEM Funders Network STEM Learning Ecosystems RFQ (view the RFQ document here). A group of stakeholders has been assembling every Friday to discuss the mission, vision and logic model of Chicago’s STEM Learning Ecosystem, and digest the data collected from our pre-survey (please fill it out if you haven’t already).
Among those decisions that must be made are the strategies our RFQ response will address. In our most recent meeting, two strategies were decided on:
1. Connecting STEM-rich learning environments
2. Fostering cross-sector collaborations
Our remaining work will focus on gathering data and setting a vision to support these two priorities. Our next step includes setting up sector-wide conversations to capture the authentic voices of all members of our STEM Learning Ecosystem. Dates for these meetings will be shared as soon as they are confirmed!
