Access to high-quality STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education is essential to be successful in today ́s rapidly changing global society. How to create robust STEM learning environments for all is a universal challenge that educators face. The answer is that educators cannot do it alone. This short presentation has three aims. First, to introduce STEM Learning Ecosystems(SLE), an established model for creating dynamic cross-sector partnerships in education. Second, to explain lessons learned and challenges faced in the first year of SLE implementation in Husavik, Iceland. Third, to discuss current research being done to measure success using a system developed by Fisher and Morrison. This research has implications for stakeholders in education across every sector as they seek evidence-based solutions to advance STEM education.
