PA STEM Coalition
The Pennsylvania STEM Coalition is an initiative under the Pennsylvania Department of Education for the purpose of uniting all of PA's STEM stakeholders (ecosystems, government organizations, networks, consortiums, business/industry, higher education, LEAs, libraries, NGOs, out of school time organizations, etc.) who function in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania STEM Coalition is a collective of stakeholders that has already planted the seeds for:
• A common vision for STEM in Pennsylvania
• Monthly virtual statewide STEM collaboration meetings
• The Pennsylvania’s computer science initiative
• The expansion of STEM Ecosystems
• The formation of the PAsmart Initiative
• The review of Pennsylvania’s Science Standards
The PA STEM Coalition is currently being led by Judd Pittman, Special Consultant to the Secretary of Education on STEM, and the Pennsylvania Statewide STEM Ecosystems (PSSE). The vision of the PSSE is to support all Pennsylvanians' access to quality STEM education and career pathways and to becoming tomorrow’s leaders, influencers, and problem-solvers.
We invite all of Pennsylvania’s STEM Champions to join us and to continue to support Pennsylvania’s vision for STEM!
