Our STEAM Community Partners


    Education researchers Ann Myers and Jill Berkowicz (2015) suggest in their book The STEM Shift that one key to successful STEM or STEAM programs is to create partnerships throughout the community to enhance learning opportunities inside and outside of the classroom.

    Indium Corporation--represented here by New Hartford alumni James McCoy (center) and Tom Donovan (far right)--was one of the district's first Community Partners.  Mr. McCoy helped in the planning phase of the district's first SpringSTEAM event, has been a guest presenter in class, and has hosted members of the STEAM committee for educational site tours.  


    The district STEAM initiative has spent the last several years nurturing those relationships.  Our Community Partners have already made many contributions to New Hartford Central Schools, from sponsoring and presenting at our Family SpringSTEAM event, hosting site tours, and donating time and STEAM learning materials to our schools.
