BASE - Broward Area STEM Ecosystem
Located in South Florida’s diverse socio-economic and cultural community, the Broward Area STEM Ecosystem (BASE) strives to increase the focus on STEM opportunities, engagement, and benefits within the tri-county area. This collection of diversified participants works collaboratively to define STEM pathways, support local STEM initiatives within programs, and provide a network of mentorship and volunteerism opportunities between the school districts and local businesses that utilize STEM.
Science Near Me - Find STEM Opportunities
Science Near Me is a free resource and directory to help quickly find opportunities to engage in STEM events, projects, programs, and experiences, both in person and online, including: science projects, museum events, science festivals, out-of-school time programs, maker faires, public science policy forums, astronomy clubs, science cafes, and more.

2018 Gifted Symposium (Nov. 2, 2018) - "Empower your Content with STEM & Computer Science" - Lisa Milenkovic, Sheryl Arriola, Debra Thomas, Annmargareth Marousky, Cynthia Griffin, Erik Leitner, Rebecca Malones, Justin Feller – Applied Learning – All Levels, SCI, STEM - STEM, especially computer science, is integrated throughout every aspect of daily life, yet often, in isolation in the school day. Engage students and empower your lessons by integrating STEM and computer science into all content areas. This presentation will provide hands-on centers that demonstrate simple and inexpensive ways to engage and enrich students in content through explorations in STEM and computer science. Explore augmented reality, computer coding, robotics, and sensory integration in English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, art, music
andphysical education. Also included are tips for deliberate attention to empathy and social-emotional learning opportunities through the integration of design principles. Participants at the Gifted Symposium are shown on the right playing with the banana piano and cereal box guitar with Makey Makey.
