STEM Thought Leaders Meeting

We take for granted that students from middle to high income families have someone at home involved in their learning.  But what about low-income families who are struggling to make ends meet?  In cases like this there often isn’t an involved family member who can inspire the child to imagine a better future.  The National PTA is committed to giving families the tools they need to help their children see possibilities outside of school. Imagining possibilities can lead to a fulfilling career and ultimately end the cycle of poverty.  It was my privilege to lend visual support at the STEM Thought Leaders Meeting in Washington D.C. where 50 passionate people came together to come up with ways to engage families in STEM.
