ecosiSTEAM promotes and implements a focus on learning models that allow for the accelerated development of new capacities and abilities related to science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM), to enhance the creative and innovative capacities of Chilean youth and ensure their full participation and inclusion in the challenges of the 21st Century. Developed by DRCLAS with the support of the US Embassy in Chile, ecosiSTEAM is an ecosystem that aims to transfer and adapt effective frameworks for STEAM, maker-centered learning, creativity, and innovation by translating a suite of scholarly articles and teacher resources developed by Harvard faculty and researchers for the Chilean context. The project aims to strengthen local capacity at different levels by hosting a series of seminars and workshops throughout Chile.
