New Pathways to STEM: Increasing Access and Opportunity in Science Education


Tuesday, November 9, 2021, 2:00pm to 3:00pm


Harvard in the Community & LabXchange—Online

Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, or STEM, has the power to inspire and the power to change the world. But those world-changing opportunities have not consistently reached enough of our learners, and the pathway to careers in STEM has not been fully accessible to all of the talented problem solvers the world needs. Now, with online learning and new digital tools rapidly advancing, educators, learners, job seekers, and industry professionals can help to expand access to STEM education and create a more inclusive and equitable STEM workforce by embracing these new tools, resources, and ways of learning.

Harvard in the Community and LabXchange invite you to join us on November 9 at 2 p.m. for a broad-ranging panel conversation with expert stakeholders about the evolution and impact of STEM education and career pathways, as well as the critical gaps and emerging opportunities that currently exist in the world of STEM.
