PhET Interactive Simulations Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Advisory Board
Are you a teacher, student, or other stakeholder committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) in K-12 or college STEM education?
Do you want to partner with PhET’s efforts around advancing DEIB in STEM education?
PhET DEIB Advisors are U.S.-based practicing teachers, students or recent graduates (age 16+), or other stakeholders who use PhET simulations and are committed to advancing the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in STEM education by:
- Co-designing an equity-focused framework with the PhET team to guide its resources, programs, and processes.
- Ideating in partnership with the PhET team to develop a set of concrete actions that PhET can take to help improve DEIB in STEM education.
- Providing ongoing strategic guidance and feedback to the PhET team on its progress related to DEIB in STEM education.
A PhET DEIB Advisor appointment lasts 12 months (starting June 2022), and consists of four half-day virtual meetings (one per quarter) in addition to approximately 8 hours of asynchronous work over the year.
Each PhET DEIB Advisor will receive a stipend at the completion of their appointment ($1,200 for STEM education professionals and $600 for students).
