Pockets of Innovation Round Two!
In 2018-2019, East Metro STEAM Partnership will showcase up to five Pockets of Innovation, providing $6,000 in support to each Pocket. In keeping with the feedback provided over the past year, these Pockets of Innovation will demonstrate partnership, equity, and regional alignment with EMSP strategies. The funds are already available and the timeline for use is longer. Outcomes and innovation will be highly valued.
Pockets of Innovation are defined by the community (you!) and we ask that each one is a partnership between more than one entity to implement an innovative solution that effectively empowers youth to pursue workforce opportunities in STEAM.
