“The Carnegie STEM Excellence Pathway tool has been used extensively across the Kansas City metro region since 2014. Annually, school districts/schools count on the KC STEM Alliance hosting Pathway workshops. They have shared with us that this is the one time of the year that they can be guaranteed protected time to discuss pre-K–12 STEM strategies, and it is the one tool that directly encourages specific conversations and actions about family and community engagement. The Pathway has been a game changer for Kansas City as it provides for strong, valuable, focused, scoring conversations that can be revisited annually.”
— Martha McCabe, Executive Director of KC STEM Alliance in Kansas City, MO

“I use the Pathway to focus and direct districts in purposeful planning and discussions. The Pathway seems to work best with districts during the year prior to embarking on curriculum writing. It helps them define their vision, mission, and focus as well as set up a meaningful timeline for writing, training, and implementing.”
— Sue Voigt, Educational Services Supervisor for Capital Area Intermediate Unit 15 in Enola, PA

“STEM is the now and the future. This Pathway allows STEM Providers to work with STEM partners and provide educational and professional development training. The STEM pillars are nationally recognized models and used in transforming the classroom from traditional to hands-on, application-based effective teaching practices.”
— Robin Avant, Dean of Academics at Housatonic Community College, Bridgeport, CT

“We are embarking on a new training pathway where educators will have the opportunity to earn an inquiry certificate by attending multiple trainings and conducting an inquiry implementation project. Our intention is to utilize the Carnegie STEM Excellence Pathway as a strategic planning effort to accompany starting these expanded learning programs. This will ensure recruitment of passionate educators to start these efforts while also developing buy-in from school leaders as we discuss contractual requirements of supporting this new opportunity.”
— Jason Porter, Director of Global Professional Development at TGR Foundation – A Tiger Woods Charity in Washington, DC
