  • -     Last year, the NC STEM Community Collaborative researched about 25 NC communities, looking for places that local leadership from business, education, economic development and community organizations were working together.  -      Through leaders like Superintendent Terry Cline and his team, NC Eastern Regions then-leader Al Delia and now John Chaffee, and the Lenoir County Committee of 100 led by Gordon and Tom Vermillion, it became clear to us that this community was willing to work together to address what it wanted to do for its children. -   We saw how the community was taking advantage of opportunities like the global transpark, Golden LEAF's community action grants, and other economic opportunities, as well as wonderful education opportunities like Learn/Earn, the NorthEast reformed school programs, and STEM programs like Project Lead the Way with great alignment. -  So, NC STEM was honored when the Lenoir Community, including members of the committee of 100, the Eastern Region, LCS staff, Lenoir Community College, Spirit Aerospace, the hospital, UNC, and others, decided to become one of the first three communities to participate in a Community Collaborative Visioning Process.  - Lenoir County joins Davie County and the 11 County BRAC region as one of the first 3 in the state. - This is hard work.  These members of your community and staff have put time, energy, sweat, and toil into this process, and have shown great leadership in engaging the broader community. 
  • There are existing resources/programs/subject matter experts - our challenge is to connect these to community visions in a way that enhances and informs these community visions.  We are not new program creators -- we connect the communities with state of the art knowledge across programs, standards and assessments, curriculum/content, professional development to inform their work.

    • 2. What is STEM EDUCATION?
      • STEM Education refers to the teaching and learning of these disciplines usually in a trans-disciplinary fashion to a level of rigor at least sufficient for college readiness without remediation and the “T & E” informs the “S & M” .
      • A student's high school experience with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) coursework has proven to be an important indicator for overall college readiness , postsecondary success , and preparation for STEM careers.
      • But the numbers are cause for concern. Of the 1.9 million students who enrolled in college, only 1.3 million were ready for college-level STEM work without remediation , and less than 280,000 intended to major in STEM-related fields.
    • 3. What is STEM EDUCATION?
      • The special significance of STEM education, and its challenges, has led to three primary areas of focus:
      • Student achievement in STEM disciplines in high school is among the strongest predictors of success in college. Consequently, the effort to develop more effective teachers in math and science as well as new STEM curricula and classroom assessments will offer greater opportunity for youth.
      • STEM disciplines pose some of the highest barriers to college readiness for students, especially students from disadvantaged and underserved backgrounds. And yet STEM study, when taught well, can be powerfully motivating for students, engaging and nurturing their natural curiosity about how their world works. The foundation is pursuing the creation of academic supports across the curricula, including STEM coursework, aligned with college-ready state standards.
      • The STEM education challenge —and the concerns it raises about U.S. economic competitiveness—has provoked the nation’s STEM experts, innovators, and leaders to get more directly involved in developing solutions. The STEM sector’s engagement on education reform issues and its efforts to help school systems incubate, pressure test, and adopt effective innovations are a critical factor in improving student achievement

      • The rapid evolution of the new global “knowledge economy” with profound effects on the world of work—all work?
      • The sudden and dramatic shift from information that is limited in terms of amount of availability to information characterized by flux and gut.
      • The increasing impact of media and technology on how young people learn and relate to the world—and to each other.
      • ( Wagner, Tony: The Global Achievement Gap, 2008.)
      How does US education respond to…
    • 5. The Problem: A Leaky Pipeline
    • 6. The Problem: Being Shut Out of STEM Careers
    • 7. Theory of Action: Scaling Innovation Through Managed Networks
      • Three key elements…
      • Investing in key states that can creatively apply their own intellectual and scientific, technical and corporate and financial to leverage and sustain multiple STEM approaches
      • Connecting these states and other partners through active networking designed to learn, capture and distribute innovation and change behavior
      • 3. Funding national advocacy through a coalition of outstanding champions that range from corporate executives and political leaders to Nobel Laureates
    • 8. Theory of Action: Outcomes Aligned with College Ready and Post-Secondary Success
      • College Readiness
      • Equity
      • Ecooomic Competitiveness
      • Teaching Effectiveness
      • Knowledge Capture and Transfer
