Description

The Project Manager (PM) is responsible for managing all aspects of a newly envisioned Center for STEAM Advancement Project under the direction of The Children’s Museum Inc. Group (TCM) and a Project Oversight Committee that includes community partners within the City of Hartford.

Four years ago, TCM initiated a study in direct partnership with numerous Hartford based organizations to identify an approach for understanding and addressing the issues and challenges facing Hartford area youth’s interests and academic achievement as a key element in their career and financial growth as well as the Hartford regions success and growth. These exploratory efforts resulted in three pilot STEAM-based ((Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math) efforts conducted in 2017 and 2018 as well as the launch of a scaling effort in the summer of 2019 through the “ Bringing STEM/STEAM to Hartford Neighborhoods ”11 (the Neighborhoods) Project involving 11 community service groups plus several community and corporate support groups. The Neighborhoods Project, with its continued focus on 3-14 year-olds and their parents/caregivers, will be the foundational element of the Center for STEAM Advancement (CSA), a collaborative endeavor by five Hartford based organizations.

CSA’s Goal:
To markedly improve the level of STEAM/STEM interests and competency, as well as the academic achievements of Hartford area's youth. In so doing it will also precipitate a perceptional shift toward a community collectively embracing/promoting STEM competency for all youth. This will be achieved through the creation and management of a STEAM/STEM- pipeline from kindergarten through college by CSA’s member organizations. To that end, each member organization of CSA will bring their existing mission statements, strengths, and community relationships to the project so as to create a more comprehensive and coordinated approach producing higher levels of impact.

As this is a new project within the Children’s Museum group, a detailed CSA project description may be requested by reaching out to The Children's Museum.
