Help NMSI get to SXSW Edu!

We hope your school year is off to a strong start and that you are inspired to make 2018-2019 outstanding for yourself, your school and your community.

As we look at the year ahead, we anticipate an important milestone in our work to eliminate STEM Deserts. We've been studying gaps and defining learning opportunities students should have in order to develop effective STEM skills and dispositions. We've also been learning from schools and communities that are successfully supporting STEM education. 

We plan to do both of these things by publishing an online visualization tool called the STEM Opportunity Index, with the hope of unveiling the tool at the SXSWEDU Conference in March 2019. It's an exciting opportunity to engage educational partners on a national stage. The launch and leveraging of this tool will help people like you play a critical role in understanding, identifying and partnering with us in the work to eliminate STEM Deserts for good.

But we can't do that without your support.

We'd love your vote to get our session on the schedule for SXSWEDU. All you have to do is:

1. Register
2. "Vote up" our SXSWEDU panel proposal by Aug. 30
3. Share with your friends so they can vote, too!

Help us make a difference in the educational opportunities of tomorrow by raising awareness about STEM Deserts today.
Here’s to an inspired year filled with many more milestones!
