Co-Create the
Future of STEM

The unCommission has created multiple ways for people like you to contribute your unique perspectives and gifts in service of identifying the next moonshots for STEM learning. You might be a storyteller, ready to share your experience in K-12 science, tech, math, or engineering. You might be an anchor organization that works directly with folks ages 13-29 who’ve been systemically excluded from STEM opportunity. You might be someone who knows and can bridge the unCommission to potential anchors and storytellers. You might also be a leader whose perspective people seek out, positioned to listen and champion our storytellers. You might have another gift to contribute to this massive and shared enterprise. Join us!

Storytellers

The heart of the unCommission. Storytellers share their real experiences in STEM learning to help reveal the most important themes and patterns related to STEM education. Primarily drawn from Black, Latinx, and Native American communities, all storytellers are invited to share whatever is true to their experience. We are truly grateful for their participation and honor their willingness to share. 

Anchors

Community-based organizations or individuals that have established, trusted relationships with young people and/or teachers, especially those furthest from inclusion in the STEM fields, particularly Black, Latinx, and Native American communities. Anchors will host storytelling opportunities for people ages 13-29 in their organization or community.

Bridgers

Individuals or organizations with connections to one or more anchor organizations who will help find and invite storytellers. Bridgers will reach out to potential anchors with whom they have trust-based relationships and invite them to join the unCommission.

Listeners / Champions

STEM experts, celebrities, educators, and other influencers bear witness to, honor, and amplify the voices uplifted through the unCommission. Each storyteller will be matched with a listener/champion who will listen to and honor the storyteller.
