about STEM Partners
STEM Partners is an innovative program that connects talented teachers with experienced STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) professionals to implement hands-on, minds-on curriculum. Employees from companies like Lilly, Salesforce, Rolls-Royce, and more are invited to volunteer as "STEM Partners" for the duration of a school year. These STEM Partners work 1:1 with a teacher for 4-6 hours per month to create and enrich the STEM learning environment in his or her classroom. The program brings STEM learning to life through two exciting curriculum options: Indiana Science Initiative and Project Lead The Way!
Why STEM PARTNERS
Most likely, you can recall a teacher, mentor, or family member who inspired you to pursue your current career. Many kids around central Indiana, especially those from underrepresented populations, don't have a connection with a STEM professional. Without that connection, kids don't understand what people in STEM fields work on and ultimately, they don't choose to pursue STEM careers. STEM Partners is bridging that gap by building partnerships between teachers and industry professionals and strengthening the presence of hands-on science curriculum in Indiana classrooms. We're providing mentorship and growth opportunities for today's students and teachers to ensure they develop the skills they will need to become the STEM leaders of tomorrow.
