Last week, the Omaha STEM Ecosystem and AIM Institute announced the launch of the free online STEM Community Platform, presented by Cox. The mission of the STEM Community Platform is to connect youth, parents, educators and professionals to an online hub of high-quality STEM programs, resources and events. The website offers easy functionality for the user to find kids camps, career listings in STEM career fields and informational resources for elementary aged children to adults.
We are elated by the support from our generous sponsors, Cox, Facebook, Clarkson College, CyncHealth, First National Bank of Omaha, Iowa West Foundation, Nebraska Department of Education, Nonprofit Association of the Midlands, Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium and University of Nebraska at Omaha. Without their support, the STEM Community Platform would not be possible.
While we’ve come a long way, there is still more work to be done. Please consider joining this community partnership by making a donation, becoming a sponsor or simply adding your STEM programming, resources and events to the STEM Community Platform at stemplatform.org.
STEM Approved Program Tool
The STEM Approved Program is a tool provided by the Omaha STEM Ecosystem you can utilize to assure best practices for youth programs are evident. This tool is used for informational and educational purposes only. For more information on STEM Approved Program criteria, please visit our website: OmahaSTEM.com
Together, and through the STEM Community Platform, education, government, nonprofit and business entities can help create a robust and vibrant STEM community that is equitable for all.
Thank you for your support,
Julie Sigmon, Director of the Omaha STEM Ecosystem
