Opening the World of STEM to All

Right now, STEM doesn’t work for everyone. Youth from historically marginalized communities have been excluded from STEM learning experiences, programs and careers. Systems must be reimagined to ensure that young people have access to affirming, joyful learning opportunities in STEM. To meet this goal, ExpandED creates opportunities for youth and educators to cultivate their sense of belonging in the STEM community, supports collaborations where educators share decision-making power with young people and develops and shares relevant content that makes STEM fun.
