About Us

Increasing collaboration, reducing duplication, identifying gaps, and promoting access to STEM education

The Philadelphia STEM Ecosystem is one of eighty-four national STEM Ecosystems, supported by the STEM Funders Network and based on a collective impact model. Our work is made possible by the collaboration of over 250 members who believe that everyone benefits when students succeed in STEM. 



The goal of the Philadelphia STEM Ecosystem is to inspire ALL students to succeed in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by drawing on the rich STEM resources of the Philadelphia region.



As the backbone organization, the Philadelphia Education Fund sets the vision and mission, facilitates communication and connections among Ecosystem members, and ensures the continuance of the local Ecosystem movement.

THE ECOSYSTEM IS HIRING! Thanks to a generous grant from GSK, we are seeking a full-time STEM Ecosystem Manager to oversee all aspects of the Philadelphia STEM Ecosystem. View job description HERE.
