The 2019 Virtual STEM Summit, hosted by STEM Next Opportunity Fund, will examine how statewide afterschool networks are engaging government agencies, policymakers, businesses, K-16 schools, economic development organizations and more to connect afterschool STEM learning and workforce development to meet the needs of a rapidly changing economy. Of course, STEM learning is about more than building a workforce. It is also about raising creative, curious, caring citizens who can take full advantage of future economic opportunities and build a more inclusive community and a more just and equitable world. The event will bring together leaders from statewide afterschool networks, industry, education, government and other sectors to showcase promising practices and proven solutions that are making a difference in solving the nation’s STEM skills gaps.
