A Call From The People

The unCommission is a massive, diverse, and participatory opportunity for young people to share their experiences to identify goals for the future of STEM learning and opportunity.

These goals will point the way to achieving equitable STEM education for all of our country's children, with an explicit focus on Black, Latinx, and Native American communities.

Through the unCommission, we will collectively listen our way forward as we co-design the future.

Release and Selection

The full constellation of goals is shared; 100Kin10 identifies one as its next moonshot goal and others across the field are invited to consider taking up other goals

100Kin10

The unCommission is coordinated by 100Kin10, which began in 2011 with 28 organizations banding together and making public commitments to respond to President Obama's call for 100,000 new, excellent STEM teachers in ten years. Now more than 300 partners strong, 100Kin10 united the nation’s top academic institutions, nonprofits, foundations, companies, and government agencies to address the nation’s STEM teacher shortage. We are proud to be poised to meet and likely exceed this goal and look forward to taking up one of the unCommission's goals as our next moonshot. By giving young people the STEM teachers they need, we are helping to unleash the next generation of innovators and problem solvers.
