GlassLab Games Named as Partner in 100Kin10, National Network to Grow STEM Teaching Force





GlassLab commits to advancing goal of recruiting, preparing, and retaining 100,000 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) teachers by 2021

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, January 22, 2015100Kin10, a multi-sector network fueling the next generation of innovators and problem-solvers by providing America’s classrooms with 100,000 excellent science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) teachers by 2021, today announced that GlassLab Games has been accepted as a partner.

“We are so thrilled to become part of the 100Kin10 network and look forward to working with partners to innovate STEM education by 2021,” said GlassLab Executive Director, Jessica Lindl.

As part of 100Kin10, GlassLab will by 2019, provide all incoming STEM teachers free access to STEM performance-based formative assessments and professional development. Of the approximately 150,000 teachers entering the field, we aim to reach 75,000 by 2020.

More and better-trained STEM teachers are essential to preparing America’s students to fully participate in our democracy and to understand and respond to complex national and global challenges. To compete in the global marketplace and provide opportunity to all young Americans, all students—not just those fortunate enough to attend certain schools—must have basic STEM skills and knowledge. GlassLab is one of the 236 best-in-class 100Kin10 partners that has designed and taken on a specific piece of work to help achieve the goal of 100,000 excellent STEM teachers.

Organizations are accepted as 100Kin10 partners following a rigorous vetting process conducted by a team of partner and other experts in education and in STEM. Reviewers seek organizations with strong leadership, a track record of success at implementation, and a well-designed and innovative commitment to action toward expanding, improving, and retaining the best of the nation’s STEM teaching force, or building the 100Kin10 movement.

A complete list of partners—with new partners highlighted—appears below and is also available on the 100Kin10 website.

To support partners in fulfilling their ambitious commitments and working together to spark innovation, 100Kin10 offers access to exclusive opportunities that build capacity, enable collaboration and shared learning to find new solutions and solve joint challenges, and facilitate funding and access to resources. For example:

• Over 95% of partners shared data about their STEM teaching work—including programmatic priorities, components, and outcomes—in response to a network-wide survey, part of 100Kin10’s growing body of research and learning;

• Thirty partners took part in 100Kin10’s first foray into partner-driven collective action, co-investing in a teacher recruitment campaign that reached over 50 million on social media;

• More than 115 partners have received grants in support of their programmatic work, totaling over $53 million through 130+ awards; and

• More than 50 partners applied for and have been awarded over $200,000 in small grants that enable in-person meeting and collaboration to advance their 100Kin10 commitments.
