YOU Belong in STEM

New Initiative to enhance STEM education for all young people

  The U.S. Department of Education recently launched YOU Belong in STEM, an initiative to galvanize the broad STEM education ecosystem to implement and scale equitable and high-quality STEM education for all young people from Pre-K to higher education. The focus will be on improving student outcomes by promoting positive conditions for STEM learning and development. In the coming weeks, the USDoE will provide guidance and other technical assistance to elevate STEM teaching and learning, convene STEM partners and thought leaders, elevate bright spots and evidence-based practices that engender belonging in STEM, and partner with public and private entities to leverage best efforts and reach. You can email STEM@ed.gov to get involved!
