STEM Learning Ecosystems
One of the objectives of YSK is to promote public-private sector partnerships in STEM initiatives among young people.
The creation of this platform will help coordinate coordinate STEM efforts in schools and make it easier for coordination and alignment of activities.
STEM Learning Ecosystems provide the architecture for cross-section learning, access to quality STEM learning environments for effective engagement in science, technology, engineering and math throughout preK-16
Joining a Global Network
YSK working with CEMASTEA and other partners successfully made an application to join a growing global community of STEM learning Ecosystems. The network now consists of 68 regional hubs from the United States, Canada, Mexico, and now Kenya.
The idea focuses on building collaborations in various settings – from schools, to after-school programmes, to informal experiences with local business and industry partners and science centres, libraries and museums – to change how students learn. Each setting offers unique and rich learning opportunities for young people, enabling students to connect with what they learn to real-world settings.
