Teachers Growing Community Through STEM
The public school teachers who run the Connecticut STEM Academy have a deep belief in STEM’s ability to engage students and in the importance of family and community involvement in student learning.
Since its founding in 2012, support from CEA, the NEA Foundation, and other groups has allowed the STEM Academy to multiply its program offerings, serving hundreds of students in many different Connecticut towns. The innovative enrichment program places a special emphasis on gender equity, cultural diversity, and direct family involvement.
