CalServe Funds Region 4 STEM Initiative


The California Department of Education awarded the Alameda County Office of Education $40,000 to establish a Regional STEM Service-Learning Consortium serving Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco and Solano Counties.

The creation of an environmentally focused Regional STEM Service-Learning Consortium will facilitate relationship building and coordination between and among existing SLWRP schools, SWANA (a professional organization for environmental engineers), locally funded Green California Partnership Academy Grantees, CalTeach (a UC Berkeley initiative to support high quality STEM instruction in urban schools). the East Bay Science Project, and California State University East Bay's National Science Foundation Integrated Middle School Science Project.

The grant seeks to engage traditionally under represented youth in STEM course work through service projects requiring the application of STEM skills.
