The Pittsburgh STEM Ecosystem seeks to understand the STEM learning landscape within a 5-county region surrounding the City of Pittsburgh with the hopes of articulating pathways for STEM learning that connects formal and informal experiences for all of our region’s children from early childhood to postsecondary education.

Representing more than 30 member organizations including schools, museums, higher education partners, professional development agencies, workforce initiatives, and others, the ecosystem is working to develop a collaborative Regional Vision, Goals, and Metrics for continuous improvement in improving STEM learning opportunities, especially in under-served communities.

The Pittsburgh Regional STEM Ecosystem is a member of the national STEM Learning Ecosystems community of practices. Launched in 2015 by the STEM Funders Network, today there are 54 communities across the United States building cross-sector collaborations to deliver rigorous, effective preK-16 instruction in STEM learning.
