Lauren earned a B.A. in Biology/Chemistry from the University of San Diego, an M.A. in Counseling & an Ed. D in Educational Leadership from the University of Southern California. Dr. Birney works collaboratively with partners and affiliates in creating STEM content, defining curriculum & assessment systems, and conducting program evaluation services for the K-12 STEM community. Dr. Birney founded and is the Co-Director of the STEM Collaboratory NYC, which was established to be a leader in enabling students and teachers to engage in the fields of STEM education, create meaningful science curricula and provide interactive inquiry-based professional development for teachers. An integral component of STEM Education is the affiliation and partnerships between Universities and the multinational corporations. The support of these partners in terms of funding, resources, and affiliate activities is critical for the success of STEM fields. Establishing a network that is multilayered and integrates aspects of business into educational practices will provide constituents with experiential learning and the ability to grow as a singular entity. Establishing multinational STEM Partnerships and collaborations will create unique opportunities for both Educational Institutions and corporations to become substantial powerhouses in the STEM arena.
