EvanSTEM D65 Logo

EvanSTEM is a public-private partnership project housed within District 65 with the goal of creating an Evanston ecosystem of STEM educators, program providers, industry leaders and professionals to increase underrepresented student success in STEM programs, courses and ultimately careers.

EvanSTEM seeks to improve access and engagement for students who have traditionally underperformed or have been underrepresented in STEM programs.

EvanSTEM's MISSION is to coordinate partnerships and programs to build relationships with underrepresented students along STEM pathways to and through high school into college and career.

EvanSTEM's THEORY OF ACTION states that early interest and engagement in impactful STEM experiences among underrepresented youth leads to positive STEM identities and continued pursuit of STEM experiences – if AVAILABLE, ACCESSIBLE and fostered via meaningful adult RELATIONSHIPS.
