Our Approach

The JBF STEM Ed Innovators model co-creates personalized programs with each participant to meet one or more of the following goals:

  1. Develop curriculum aligned with equitable learning standards such as the NGSS

  2. Foster culturally responsive and sustaining pedagogical practices

  3. Facilitate collaborative communities of practice, centering on funds of knowledge of historically marginalized and under-represented communities

JBF does not stop at classrooms. We change how the entire STEM teacher development pipeline functions. Redesigning STEM education with quality, equity and belonging -- from pre-service STEM teachers to STEM teacher/leaders -- is vital towards granting future generations full participation in the modern world of STEM.

We achieve this by integrating the three pillars of democratic teaching: Shared Authority, Student Voice and STEM Criticality.
