GCSC is a nonprofit on the mission to create a robust, equitable STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) talent pipeline to meet the accelerating demand for STEM jobs in our three-state region. GCSC brings education, community, and business partners together to provide rich STEM learning experiences for our students. These experiences are proven to grow student interest in, and confidence, to pursue STEM careers.
Greater Cincinnati continues its growth as a technologically rich, vibrant community with the most talented STEM workforce in the country that is representative of the region’s population.
GCSC helps prepare students for their futures and to join Greater Cincinnati’s workforce through connected, robust STEM learning pathways. STEM learning is propelled by business, education, community collaboration and our culture of incubation, acceleration, and inclusion.
How We Do Our Work
Creating a STEM talent pipeline that is representative of the Greater Cincinnati region takes a village. GCSC has developed our own at-school, after school programs focused on hands-on STEM experiences. We also amplify STEM efforts, events and programs of partners, and collaborate with other organizations to create or bring STEM experiences to Greater Cincinnati.
How We Organize
GCSC pursues and leverages diversity to stimulate innovative thinking and creative solutions. Leadership team, staff, and Advisory Board members combine education, nonprofit, government, and business expertise & perspective for the good of the Greater Cincinnati STEM. Together with partners across the community we maximize GCSC’s reach and positive impacts for students.
GCSC is committed to creating a STEM talent pipeline that is representative of the region’s population. This means focusing on students that are under-represented in STEM.
During the 2018-2019 school year, 53% of students served identified as students of color (African American, Hispanic / Latino) and 51% as female. 70-75% of students were from low income background.
GCSC is also the backbone organization that amplifies efforts and connects STEM-focused partners. Through community convenings and program-based partnerships GCSC collaborated with 75+ organizations in 2018-2019.
