California STEM Learning Network
The California STEM Learning Network (CSLNet) is a newly-formed nonprofit organization that works to catalyze innovation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) teaching and learning in the State of California. CSLNet advocates for and impacts policies and practices that will rapidly scale STEM education innovation and support educators in preparing students throughout California for success in postsecondary education and work opportunities, particularly those students who have historically been underserved.
In order to address California’s workforce needs and to better prepare our state’s students to contribute to a vibrant California economy, CSLNet aims to:
- Goal #1: Increase interest and competencies among all K-14 California students in STEM disciplines (with an emphasis on critical thinking, innovation, and use of information technologies).
- Goal #2: Ensure all California students are college and career ready, without the need for remediation upon graduation from high school, with a greater number of students pursuing STEM-related degrees and careers.
- Goal #3: Build a network that connects existing assets and develop new capacity to innovate, scale and sustain effective STEM teaching and learning.
