STEM & Empathy

We did it!

STEM & Empathy: what do these two things have in common? It turns out, the combination is powerful!

Last Friday, May 8th, we had a wonderful gathering of more than 60 people from 30 schools and organizations at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View. The diversity of participants was striking — every level of education from preschool to higher education was represented. And there were teachers and administrators from public schools and districts, private schools, public charter schools, and both non-profit and for-profit organizations.

We’ll post much more, including a few pictures in the next few days, but for now, here’s the list of schools and organizations that were represented:
