Gov. Jay Inslee hosted a round table discussion today at Institute for Systems Biology with a group of invited college students, who were asked to share their thoughts on the affordability of education. We were honored to be able to provide the venue. ISB has had a long history of supporting systemic change at the K-12 school district level to improve the quality and access of STEM education. Now, our education staff are working with community colleges in Washington State to consider how STEM-related courses might be revised to better reflect contemporary issues and needs to better prepare students for the job market. Learn more about ISB’s work through our Logan Center for Education and the Baliga Lab’s systems education program here.
