Brief Description of the talk: Making STEM Cities: Education Ideas and Strategies, for Policymakers to Students

How can education can help create an equitable society? A current and high-profile topic is moving from lecture-and-test to real-world experiences. Dr. Cliff Zintgraff will share stories and strategies from his work creating real-world experiences for students. You’ll hear about students addressing the problems of their cities, and about partnerships that take school far beyond textbooks. He’ll share examples of stakeholders playing their best role regardless of their setting—stakeholders including policymakers, classroom teachers, students, and cross-sector partners–all working to improve quality-of-life for students, families, and communities, including those with the greatest need. His talk will draw on three sources: SA (San Antonio) Smart: The Mayor’s K-12 Smart City Challenge; his recent book STEM in the Technopolis: The Power of STEM Education in Regional Technology Policy; and his latest academic paper on aligning the stakeholders in education from philosophy to practice.
