STEM Equity Assistance

Educators across the country know the urgency of increasing STEM participation and performance by race and gender.

This need is reflected by a dismal STEM pipeline that traces back to states’ uneven investment in high-quality STEM programs that effectively prepare girls and students of color with high-quality math and science.

In this IDRA STEM Equity – Online Technical Assistance Package, we show how schools and communities can open pathways for girls and students of color in the curricular pipeline to prepare them for STEM careers.
