CAC Benefits From Two Key Networks!

Our partnership with the DC STEM Network allows us to connect with educators, industry experts, colleges, and community organizations, to support STEM learning across the city.

The DC STEM Network, is a partnership between the Carnegie Academy for Science Education and the DC Office of the State Superin-tendent of Education that unites community partners to help inspire and prepare all DC youth to succeed, lead, and innovate in STEM fields and beyond.

Our affiliation with this connected learning environment enables us to continue to engage DC youth, 6 to 24 years old by offering opportunities for them to gain Digital Badges and exposure to a wide range of resources that benefit the entire family.

The District of Learning is a conglomerate of like-minded community partners that provide learning opportunities that spark curiosity and spur creativity in youth and prepare them for learning and working in the 21st Century.
