How can partnerships deepen the education experience for students and the community? How do you create a strong partnership culture in your school? Participants will learn the role of partnerships in STEM from the Quality Model for STEM and STEAM schools. We will explore the nature of partnerships, provide time to brainstorm and share potential partnerships based on curriculum, events, and community needs. STEM Leaders from Ohio’s STEM designated schools will share their experiences and how community partnerships positively impact learning for all students.
