Not all students have equal opportunities to learn STEM from PreK through high school, gain STEM literacy, and fully prepare for civic life and the workforce. However, we can reshape PreK–12 STEM education to broaden participation for ALL students, including those from groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in STEM fields. Through this video, we invite you to join CADRE and researchers funded through NSF’s Discovery Research PreK-12 program in conversation about critical questions, such as:

  • What are the best approaches to supporting interest and achievement in STEM learning for ALL student populations?
  • How do we increase teacher diversity and voice in STEM research, development, and policy?
  • Which strategic research and development partnerships do we need to form and maintain to broaden participation in STEM education?


The presenters’ project work was funded through National Science Foundations's Discovery Research PreK-12 program (DRK-12). The program seeks to significantly enhance the learning and teaching of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and computer science (STEM) by preK-12 students and teachers, through research and development of STEM education innovations and approaches. 

The Community for Advancing Discovery Research in Education (CADRE) supports and connects researchers, educators, and others committed to improving preK-12 STEM education. We invite you to visit cadrek12.org and our STEM Smart website to learn about STEM education research and product, including a spotlight on broadening participation in STEM education and research.

CADRE helps DRK-12 researchers share their methods, findings, results, and products inside the research and development community and with the greater public so that we are:

  • better informed about the work that is being done,
  • continually building on what we have collectively learned,
  • working with our schools, communities, and policy-makers to make our findings and products accessible and usable, and
  • progressively able to address new and more challenging issues – including those issues that extend beyond the limits of what any singular research project can impact.


Together, we can make a larger impact on policy, research and education.
