The K-8 STEM Network is an educational initiative of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles’ (ADLA) Department of Catholic Schools to develop a community of elementary schools committed to teaching science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).  The goal is to implement high-quality, project-based STEM instruction in elementary schools with a majority of low-income students of color to close the gap they experience in STEM learning opportunities.  The initiative was launched in 2019-20 at three schools.  Over the next two years, the ADLA will add four schools to the network, providing standards-based STEM instruction to a minimum of 1,000 students so that they are better prepared to be STEM-literate and fully equipped to handle rapid technological change.  A Keck Foundation grant will support equipment, teacher training and curricular resources for the STEM Network schools.
