STEM Education, Economics, and Equity (SEEE) Seminar Series

The SEEE initiative offers a series of seminars centered on presentations by economists, political scientists, educators, and leading thinkers who are experts on some of the "big questions" about how science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education relate to economics and social equity. Each seminar includes a presentation and a subsequent panel discussion with local leaders who raise questions and react to the presenters' ideas.

We hope that over the years this initiative will offer support for political, economic, and educational leaders in Southern California to become better educated on the different viewpoints at the intersections between STEM education, economics, and culture.  Furthermore, we expect that this richer and deeper understanding will help catalyze other initiatives striving to influence educational policies in Sacramento and Washington, as well as local innovations benefiting students and families in the San Diego area.
