STEM K-16 Partners Network meeting Recap

Posted by PHENND on January 21, 2019

It was great to see such a large turnout on Tuesday January 15th for our first meeting of 2019! A huge thank you to our speakers, Ayana Lewis from the School District of Philadelphia, Latoya Winkfield from Steppingstone Scholars, Inc., and Jamie Shuda from the University of Pennsylvania. A lot of great resources were shared, so I’ve tried to capture most of them below.
