Advancing STEM Education for All
Tuesday, February 23, 2021, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM EST
The New York Academy of Sciences
STEM education is more important than ever. In our ever-changing, technology-driven world, students must be equipped with the knowledge and skills afforded by STEM learning—problem solving, critical thinking, curiosity, and persistence, among many others. STEM expertise is also desperately needed to address the many challenges facing our world, particularly those identified by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Yet in many places throughout the world—in developed and developing countries alike—students lack access to meaningful STEM learning.
Join the Academy’s Chief Learning Officer, Hank Nourse, for a conversation with Dr. Mmantsetsa Marope, Executive Director of the World Heritage Group, as they discuss the impacts of STEM education on individual, national, and global development.
During this webinar, presenters will address the following topics:
- What does high-quality STEM education look like?
- How does STEM learning benefit individuals?
- What role does STEM education play in national and global development?
- How might we ensure equitable access to STEM learning, particularly in the face of growing inequities exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic?
