“This award is an important recognition of the ongoing efforts of the New Jersey STEM Pathways Network to expand STEM opportunities by focusing on the important roles of early childhood education, computer science, teacher recruitment and training, and workforce development ” said Kim Case, NJSPN’s manager and executive director of the Research & Development Council of New Jersey.
The NJSPN was created in 2014 and is managed by the Research & Development Council of New Jersey. It includes over 500 STEM leaders from across the state and connects all STEM stakeholders-K-12, higher education, non-profit, informal providers, business, philanthropists and government.
NJSPN launched four STEM learning ecosystems in 2017 as part of an international network of now 84 ecosystems supported by the STEM Funders’ Network. This past April, a fifth ecosystem was created in Central New Jersey: the Hunterdon, Somerset and Mercer Tri-County ecosystem.
