Below are highlights of the innovative work our talented staff accomplished in 2022, and a sneak peak of what makes us excited for 2023. Thank you for joining us in another year of building futures for all through math and science education!
Worked to Develop More Equitable Education Environments and Foster Thriving STEM Identities for ALL
Selected by NSF to lead REVISE, the new Informal STEM Learning (ISL) Equity Resource Center.
Wrote the Engineering for Equity eBookthat explores the intersection of engineering education, family learning, early childhood, and equity.
Published STEM Workforce Stories for adolescents who are deaf or hard of hearing to generate career awareness.
Developed an evolving set of resources designed to support teachers and educators in thinking about issues of equity, access, identity, and agency in the elementary mathematics classroom.
Increased Influence in STEM Education Outside the Classroom with Newly Funded Projects
AAMASE: Young women of color will have the opportunity to learn and use STEM and entrepreneurship skills in makerspaces.
AMPD4Math: The Cesar Chavez Foundation and TERC are working with youth and afterschool leaders to co-design projects that draw on students’ desire to help others while growing positive identities as mathematics learners.
Informed on the Best Practices & Research in STEM Education
TERC has 8 new Principal Investigators (PIs) who were awarded their first grants in 2022.
Looking Forward to 2023
We are excited to be the stewards of REVISEand build upon CAISE’s work to enhance access and equity-centered practices in STEM learning. You can continue to visit informalscience.org to see the work this team will be doing to cultivate lasting change in ISL and broaden the STEM education ecosystem.
