Resilience and Resolve: The Power of STEM Learning Ecosystems will offer discussions, workshops, and resources that support the development and scaling of Ecosystem models. It will also feature the interactive platform VirBELA, giving guests the opportunity to engage in real networking opportunities! Attendees will be able to create their own avatar and attend happy hours with friends, walk around the campus, and even go to the beach with your team.

Ecosystems have always been positioned to provide collaborative solutions that keep community at the center of learning and work. With its inception in 2015, the STEM learning ecosystems community of practice (SLECOP) is a model to reimagine education and career pathways for thriving communities.

The global pandemic of 2020 forced our nation to reexamine issues that have been pressing challenges within communities for decades and SLECOP believes ecosystems offer a model to do this work most effectively.
