CCLI partners on new Cambio project.
Cambio is a National Science Foundation-funded professional development project for informal learning institutions—zoos, children’s museums, science centers, and other similar organizations—across the United States. It’s built on the premise that by developing cultural competence specific to Latinx communities and STEM, coupled with intentional changes in practice, museums can improve their ability to be inclusive of their Latinx communities, cultures, and audiences.
Cambio leverages the CCLI* (Cultural Competence Learning Institute) professional development model and the actionable insights from the Exploratorium’s National Science Foundation-funded GENIAL Summit. As with CCLI, Cambio offers a yearlong professional development program for museum teams, along with resources and tools, to help museums shift internal practices to better create STEM experiences that are culturally relevant, responsive, and sustaining to Latinx audiences.

*CCLI (Cultural Competence Learning Institute) is a partnership among Children’s Discovery Museum, Association of Science and Technology Centers, Association of Children’s Museums, and Garibay Group.
