Project SYSTEMIC

NSF Awards: 1744523

2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6, Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12, Informal / multi-age

Project SYSTEMIC aims to broaden participation of African American youth in Chicago’s largest neighborhood, Austin. Using systems-thinking methodology, the project engages residents and diverse stakeholders in the Austin community in a problem structuring process to map the community’s STEM learning ecosystem and uncover the interdependencies that contribute to Austin’s broadening participation challenge. The maps are then used to identify and pursue locally-driven interventions. Project SYSTEMIC offers a model for bringing local stakeholders to the problem-solving table and building the capacity of the community to self-organize around the complex challenge of broadening participation in STEM. The project is led by Project Exploration, a small community-based science education organization in Chicago. Project Exploration is also the backbone organization for the Chicago STEM Pathways Cooperative, a cross-sector collaborative that works to address inequities in the STEM learning continuum by facilitating cross-sector knowledge building, collaboration, and collective action.
