The Brooklyn STEAM Center is a joint endeavor between the New York Department of Education (NYDOE) and Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC).
After two years in operation, Brooklyn STEAM joined the New Schools Design Collaborative—a joint effort supported by Transcend and NewSchools Venture Fund—and embarked on a 10-month journey to reimagine and redesign their schools.
During that time, and over the years that followed, the STEAM Center designed a Career and Technical Education experience deeply rooted in the 21st-century skills young people want to learn and will need to be successful in their postsecondary futures.
This is the story of the STEAM-Transcend partnership and how the two organizations collaborated to provide a tangible pathway to economic mobility and wealth creation for young, predominantly Black and Latinx 11th and 12th grade students in New York City.
