STEM PUSH thinks about science, engineering, technology and math – STEM – through the lens of racial equity. Equity is the approach with which we review all of our work, processes, learning and research.
STEM PUSH continues to share resources and support PCSP leaders in connecting these resources and associated content into programs. As part of this approach, STEM PUSH conducted two additional book studies (read more about the first book study) to examine how PCSPs can make STEM more culturally relevant and appropriate for Black, Indigenous and Latina/o/e students.
This newsletter will review our learning after reading Science in the City and Braiding Sweetgrass, two books that focus on science tools and the navigation of racist STEM systems, while working on impacting larger system change.
