Career Ready: Close The STEM Gap with Partnerships

Collaborative public private partnerships can offer students new ways to discover STEM careers. Itron, a company dedicated to the resourceful use of energy and water, worked with Dr. Michael Webber from UT Austin and Disco Learning Media to create interactive resources for STEM literacy. Together they partnered with the Energy Institute High School on a campus-wide adoption of these resources. This case study will reveal outcomes and highlight why partnerships are vital for closing the STEM gap.
