The 2011 pilot STEM Institute will be delivered in San Francisco by a partnership including City College of San Francisco, San Francisco State University, and the Exploratorium; and in the East Bay by Chabot College, CSU East Bay and Lawrence Hall of Science. Graduates of both programs will continue on a 5 year teacher training pathway, while building STEM capacity at partner after school programs through serving as teacher assistants.
The STEM teacher pathway builds on the statewide after-school teacher training initiative now being piloted in nine sites around California through a partnership of the CSU Chancellor’s office, the Packard foundation, and regional education and workforce agencies. This initiative employs jobs in after-school programs as a foundation for accelerated teacher-training leading to positions in local school districts.
