April 12, 2016

Thirty-three individual representatives from a dozen 100Kin10 partner organizations have been selected to participate in 100Kin10’s 2nd Annual Fellowship Program. Over the next seven months, Fellows will join a collaborative community and use improvement science and human-centered design principles to prototype and test innovative solutions to this year’s critical challenge area: supporting active STEM learning in grades P-3.

More specifically, the Fellowship includes opportunities to:
* work collaboratively and cross-organizationally with other leaders in STEM education to develop and pilot-test innovative solutions that address this year’s critical challenge;
* learn to use ideas from improvement science and user-centered design to advance innovative solutions and future work;
* work elbow-to-elbow with peers and experts at three in-person events, receive frequent virtual coaching and peer and expert feedback between events, and collaborate virtually on an easy-to-use platform; and
* prepare the highest-possible-quality application for the follow-on 100Kin10 Early STEM Learning Challenge Grant to bring solutions to life.
