The Smithsonian Science Education Center in collaboration with Shell USA, Inc. is hosts an annual STEM Education Summit to engage leadership teams throughout the US who have identified problems of practice related to attracting and retaining a diverse STEM teaching workforce. This Summit is a highly interactive experience, with a clear outcome at the end – giving education systems the tools to develop district-specific “action plans” for attracting and retaining minority STEM teachers to leadership roles while remaining in the classroom.
The deadline to apply as a team or mentor for the Diversity in STEM Education Summit has passed. Please check back in the fall for more information about the 2024 Summit.
