Since 2016, the NLSA collaborated on more than 55 programs, serving at least 17,600 individuals for a total of 28,600 contact hours. These activities include Professional Development workshops, student workshops, field trips, IMAX movies, summer camps, coding, robotics, festivals, faires, and environmental education/clean ups. We are now beginning our fourth year to serve more students and teachers in North Louisiana.

About Us

Diverse Community Partners

A STEM learning ecosystem encompasses schools, community settings such as after-school and summer programs, science centers and museums, and informal experiences at home and in a variety of environments that together constitute a rich array of learning opportunities for young people. A learning ecosystem harnesses the unique contributions of all these different settings in symbiosis to deliver STEM learning for all children. Designed pathways enable young people to become engaged, knowledgeable and skilled in the STEM disciplines as they progress through childhood into adolescence and early adulthood. 

Stem For All
