STEM Learning Ecosystems Community of Practice (SLECoP) convenings provide the key platform for a national and regional peer-to-peer professional learning network for communities to share information and expertise. Members of the Community of Practice help shape the agenda for the convenings with access to STEM and cross-sector collaboration experts from across the country.

“NASA’s Mission for All”
Session: 1. Ecosystem in Action Study – NASA’s Science Activation Broadening Participation
NASA is interested in ecosystems – not just the planetary kind, but the STEM Learning kind too. In 2020 a five-year project was funded by the Science Mission Directorate to bring together SLEs and NASA science engagement programs. This breakout will share findings from the first 18 months of the project, including four case studies from rural and indigenous communities. Included in the session will be an overview of the research, highlights of the four case studies sites (AK, AZ, NC, ME), and a showcase of NASA programs and resources (including some cool citizen science programs).
