The National Science and Technology Council released on Tuesday its five-year plan for STEM education. Within it, they stated STEM ecosystems as a top priority. In 2015, the Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance (TRSA) became one of the charter members of the STEM Learning Ecosystems, developing an internationally-recognized collaborative community.
A primary goal of these STEM Ecosystems is to develop systems that bring together industry, education, and community partners to work towards stronger STEM opportunities for students. This collaborative method has enabled TRSA to reach over 160,000 students in Green Country this year alone. As the White House Office of Science & Technology turns its focus to STEM Ecosystems, TRSA looks forward to strengthening its partnerships to create stronger STEM opportunities for students in Green Country.
