Engaging the Next Generation: Industry Partnerships in FUSE
This video documents a new approach to partnership between an informal STEAM learning environment (FUSE) and an industry partner (Christopher Duquet Fine Jewelry). FUSE is an interest-driven learning experience that engages pre-teens and teens in science, technology, engineering, arts/design and mathematics (STEAM) topics while fostering the development of important 21st century skills.
FUSE’s partnership with Christopher Duquet, along with partnerships with other industry professionals, is designed to introduce young people to industry-linked challenges that broaden their perspectives about what counts as STEAM and provide them more clearly marked pathways toward deepening interest, progressing expertise, and exposure to possible career trajectories in STEM and STEAM.
