How We Work:

We are experts at igniting a passion for STEM Learning. Here’s how we do it:

  • Coordinate- a common agenda for increasing high-impact STEM Learning across Baton Rouge
  • Convene- community of practice to connect educators with cross-sector partners
  • Catalyze- funding awards to celebrate and scale innovative learning projects
  • Communicate- share best practices and insights; promote opportunities and policies

The Foundation encourages integrated approaches to learning that guide students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers and exemplary citizens. In partnership with community stakeholders in the private and public sectors and with input from professional educators, academic research, parents and students, we seek measurable gains in three critical areas: student achievement; community involvement; and the support of innovative and effective teaching.
