About The STEM Research Group

The STEM project has several strategic partnerships with three major urban school districts, Los Angeles Unified School District, Paramount Unified School District, and the ICEF Charter schools. We have received three NSF grants, a grant from NIH and a grant from California Postsecondary Education Commission (CPEC) to promote collaborative STEM teacher training and professional development. These partnerships are critical to the advancement of STEM achievement in K-12 and to increasing access to college of underrepresented groups in STEM fields.


In addition to our school district partners, we have partnerships with Para Los Ninos, the Jewish Federation, and St. Anne's. These L.A. area communtity agencies provide diverse services to urban families in need and these partnerships greatly support our urban mission.
