Tips for Connecting with Community Partners
  • Be supportive of guest speakers, presenters and other community partners.
  • Seek out and invite other community partners to find ways to engage in your program.
  • Know your program’s mission or goal and find partners whose mission or goal aligns with yours.
  • Look for STEM-rich institutions (zoos, museums, botanical gardens, parks, etc.) and STEM businesses or industries to partner with. Many of these organizations will have an outreach requirement and can provide programming in out-of-school time.
