Students in classroom working together

Join the Conversation

Participation in the STEM PUSH Network will support the continuous improvement of your programming while creating a mechanism to benefit your students’ postsecondary pathways.

Local and regional STEM ecosystems will serve an important role in this work by identifying additional PCSPs in their urban area and connecting PCSPs involved in the STEM PUSH Network with equity-focused higher education institutions, educational organizations, and corporations committed to broadening the participation of underrepresented groups.

Local and regional STEM ecosystems can also provide opportunities for STEM PUSH Network participants to share their learning with the entire local or regional ecosystem. As the accreditation process develops, local and regional ecosystems will help to brand the process with higher education institutions to create market demand for both PCSP participation and institutionalization in admissions.

Benefits of Participation

  • Connect to a national project supported by the National Science Foundation.
  • Increase the coherence of STEM programming in your ecosystem by supporting the linkages between PCSPs and higher education.
  • Learn how to use improvement science as a mechanism for continuous improvement.
  • Build deep connections with other regional STEM ecosystems and many PCSPs from across the country.

We will be chatting with @remakelearning and @STEMecosystems on Tues, 7/27, at 7 pm EDT/4 pm PDT. Join us to discuss underrepresentation in post-secondary STEM & the important relationship between pre-college STEM programs + college admissions! #RemakeLearning #diversifySTEM

How do we stop leaks in the STEM pipeline, especially for POC students, English learners, & students experiencing poverty?

Cassandra Brentley, @PittCUE & Pulling Brilliance Out in STEM, shares that one way is through independent learning. #RemakeLearning

Our Network members are in the middle of the summer Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) cycles! Most have planned how they will implement the new routine or tools in their programming & are currently in the "Do" stage. We're excited to share results from the improvement groups this fall!

It is so great to welcome students back into the lab! Gene Team is coming to Pitt in their small groups to investigate microbial biodiversity and we couldn’t be happier to see them in person!
