STEM Leadership Alliance
Collaborating to Build the Workforce of the Future
FREE LIVE WEBINAR WITH IEEE REACH!
The Rise of The Skyscrapers! Explore free resources that delve into the rise of the skyscraper in the industrial world, including its origin and impact. Deepen inquiry and student engagement with the social relevance of STEM, through the lens of history! As noted by renowned engineer and historian Henry Petroski, “To Engineer is Human.”
Since the days of the pyramids, human beings have tried to build toward the sky, but this trend exploded in the modern period in conjunction with urbanization, industrialization, and increasing population density.
IEEE REACH (reach.ieee.org), a crosscutting, interdisciplinary program, provides educators with free resources that link abstract concepts, such as how problems have been solved in the past with real-life situations today, providing a new lens from which students may view engineering and technology as relevant to their lives. Walk away inspired from the webinar with free lesson units, formative and summative performance tasks, hands-on activities, and short engaging videos that may be used immediately in the classroom.

In cooperation with businesses, nonprofits, schools, districts, the major STEM Associations, and diverse leaders in STEM along with MIT and The Challenger Centre, this three-day conference will deliver high-impact keynote and breakout sessions, engaging networking events, and a variety of opportunities for STEM educators to explore products, solutions and thought leadership from trusted industry leaders.
The Global STEM Leadership Alliance Summit 2023 is where these leaders will share and gain essential knowledge, find new solutions, and fuel synergy to help them reimagine and transform STEM education in their states, districts, and schools.
The STEM Leadership Alliance (SLA) is a collaboration of the major STEM organizations, education leaders and experts, colleges/universities, businesses, non-profits, and foundations. The STEM Leadership Alliance aims to disrupt and revolutionize STEM education through integration.
SLA is committed to bridging the gap between education and industry through advancing STEM experiences for both educators and students to address the business needs of the future. As a result of these targeted efforts, the Alliance will collectively foster STEM integration in education that prepares preK-12 and post-secondary students with the critical skills needed to compete in a changing global economy.
Too often, school systems across the country teach STEM subjects in silos. As a result, math and science are not coordinated with technology and engineering engagement activities and learning, and STEM is not integrated across subject areas. SLA seeks to change this in a profound way. Leveraging proven research and best practices, SLA will implement a disruptive model for STEM integration across the country. SLA will support educators through professional development, assessing existing structures, and working with districts to build leadership capacity to connect integrated STEM to the needs of the current and future workforce. By revolutionizing and supporting the way that integrated STEM is taught, the Alliance will advance its agenda of access and equity to prepare all students for success in the future.
The STEM Leadership Alliance aims to DISRUPT and revolutionize STEM education to shape tomorrow’s workforce.
The STEM Leadership Alliance supports schools and districts by building their capacity to increase the understanding and implementation of effective STEM education for all students in order to develop individuals who are prepared not just for college and career but also for lifelong learning and societal contributions. This is done by leveraging STEM experts including industry leaders, educators, non-profits organizations, and foundations to build a comprehensive understanding of the needs in the workforce for today and tomorrow.
