Sherita Love
37:56
Great insights here everyone!
Cynthia Chapple
38:01
Elimination of gifted programs and STEM specific tracks all students should be given quality STEM learning.
Xochitl Garcia
39:17
Yes!!
Angelia Rougeau
40:16
Another key to broadening participation is providing skill development to educators. Skilled teachers, aware of next generation careers, help with participation.
Hillary Frey
40:25
YES
Cynthia Chapple
40:49
STEM learning and skills are going to critical for almost all careers of the future traditional and none traditional. scientist and engineers are the top professions to become entrepreneurs as well. The skills are neccessary whether kids enter a " traditional STEM career" or not.
Maxine Clark
40:59
STEM has to be relevant to their everyday life from Day 1. Thinking of curriculum as building one year on top of another so it makes sense... ie. how does chemistry relate to cooking, and engineering to computers, the environment etc.
Natalie Self
41:26
Question is: are there places where students receive STEM learning in a framework to assimilate them to a dominate culture?
Denise Gregory
42:35
Schools
Stephen White
42:35
unfortunately most education is based on deficits. It is interesting to explore the asset-based approach.

Robyn Allscheid

STEM skills is a way of knowing, processing and understanding. There are other ways of knowing that don't get acknowledged. In addition, we also don't acknowledge that our kids in urban environments, practice STEM skills daily just to live and exist in the world.
Cynthia Chapple
45:33
👍🏿
Angelia Rougeau
50:27
If we are anti-racist, why is assimilation needed?
Kari Brownholland
50:49
How do we differentiate between problems with people, and problems that people have?
Cynthia Chapple
52:00
We have problematic systems that exasperated the decades long in equity outcomes that are a direct result of intentional disenfranchisement.
Melissa Pillot
53:32
"we are sending them out into racist workplaces"
Cynthia Chapple
54:24
👍🏿
Dena Ladd
55:30
Great discussion Thank you Natalie
Cynthia Chapple
57:46
We also need to investigate the bias in the data but thats a entire conversation on its own for another day!
Jo-Elle Mogerman
58:05
Humans are hierarchical and clickish. If we forget this, our desire toward anti-racism and equity will be slower than it has to be.
Sherita Love

+1 Cynthia!

Horrible decision! 25% of high schools in majority black school districts do not offer Alegbra II currently.
Cynthia Chapple
01:03:06
Nationwide
Kari Brownholland
01:05:03
Do you have thoughts for those of us in higher education? Often, many colleges like to blame achievement gaps on earlier educational experiences and not the college itself.
Carmen Ward
01:05:21
Thank you very informative
Steve Coxon
01:06:08
We should judge higher ed based on how far students come, not how selective admissions were.
Kristen Carroll
01:06:16
Kari thanks for that question! Such a good pt to call out
Erica Williams
01:06:34
What would Stem Stl's work look like for programs for older youth - 19 to 26?
Susan Katzman
01:06:47
kari, I think colleges and K-12 have to find more and more ways to work together and build a pipeline that can work across the board.
Steve Coxon
01:06:48
Kids from poverty enter kindergarten closer to their middle class peers than they are at the end of 5th grade.
Melissa Pillot
01:07:08
+1 for Erica's question
jerry steiner
01:07:46
Thank you Natalie. Very helpful. As a white business leader, I think we have to get everyone at work (and everywhere) to see that unless we all take the proactive step to stop racism we are allowing it to grow. (and much is simply not visible to most) it would help to
jerry steiner
01:09:03
adding on my last message which i did not finish…. we need a simple, short way to say this that is hard hitting but not insulting. i could use help on that. would love the poster to put up on the wall. thank you
Deborah Holmes
01:09:04
What are all the systems and policies that would change if we genuinely BELIEVED that STEM is everywhere and EVERY child is a STEM learner?
Laura Winter
01:09:13
Thanks, Natalie. Happy to connect with @kari and others. laura@stlouisgraduates.org
Melanie Bernds
01:09:36
Natalie thank you for sharing your expertise, honesty and guidance. I look forward to the ongoing conversation and actions.
Annie Mayrose
01:09:45
Great Presentation! Thank you Natalie.
Jonelle Harris
01:09:48
This was great! Thank you Natalie!
Stephen White
01:09:48
Thank you for your insightful, and inspirational language. I have learned.
Cynthia Chapple
01:10:26
systems and policies to change? Education pedagogy with no cultural relevance and competence to educating black students.
Sherita Love
01:11:27
Thank you to everyone for joining and for sharing. Stay engaged and involved while keeping our kids at the center of our anti-racist journeys.
Melissa Pillot
01:11:37
stem as more than career path. it is something that can be enjoyed
Steve Coxon
01:11:46
I think one of the big issues in schools is that the curriculum is not relevant and over time we praise kids who do work they don't care about and punish kids who want relevance.
Laura Winter
01:11:51
Yes, as always!
Lisa Nichols
01:12:39
This has been a fantastic discussion. Lets keep the discussion going….and let STEMSTL be the problem solving machine
Sherita Love
01:12:47
We will share this recording and resources shared by Natalie and in the chat via social and our newsletter.
Harry Arader
01:13:06
I like the idea of finding something positive we each can do every day and then pursue it mindfully - a small theory of change? I think this is what you mean.
Cynthia Chapple
01:13:20
STEM hip hop is amazing! Hip Hop is the top streamed music across all races. i
Passion Bragg
01:13:23
I agree with Steve

Join us next week to hear from Dr. Lagarett King at 4:30pm!
Kaitlin Page
01:13:40
Thank you!! I'm currently thinking about performative vs actual policies. My current firm engages in performative DI programs
Chris Bell
01:13:42
What are ways to make STEM culturally relevant to adult learners outside of the traditional classroom environment or higher-education? Thinking flatiron school, accelerators, etc
Allison Mauser
01:13:44
you need to meet the learners where they are, get input as to the best way they learn, and work around that. recognize their inherent brilliance
Julia Moskowitz
01:13:45
Science in the City: Culturally Relevant STEM Education by Brayan A Brown (Harvard) is also a great resource to read.
Travis Bracht
01:14:07
It is often said that every system was perfectly designed to accomplish the intended outcome. I might argue that the K-12 education system has exceeded its intended outcomes and is due for an entire redesign with different outcomes envisioned.
Dawn Richards
01:14:39
I would like to add that schools need to re-evaluate their curriculum and determine what is relevant.
Jeffrey Whitford
01:14:50
Thank you Sherita and Natalie for facilitating this discussion
Maia Elkana
01:14:57
We saw districts serving “under resourced” (based on CEP) communities push math and science harder during quarantine this spring than those serving wealthier, whiter communities - I wonder how much focus on emotional support was pushed aside because of the focus on kids’ deficits for testing… :/
Nevels Nevels
01:14:57

Kevin Kickham
01:16:26
Thank you, Natalie! Really appreciate this presentation as we all look for ways to advocate for anti-racist changes in our work, policies, programs and systems for BIPOC folks in STEM education and careers! And thank you Sherita for leading the call!
Monique Hite-Patterson
01:17:28
Thank you. I was just accepted into UMSL's doctoral program (STEM Themes), so many resources for me to use! Thank you so much!
