Jennifer Bruckner

Executive Director - IISME

Jennifer Bruckner is the Executive Director for Industry Initiatives for Science and Math Education (IISME).

Industry Initiatives for Science and Math Education (IISME), founded in 1985, seeks to transform teaching and learning through industry-education partnerships. IISME exists to address the critical need for a strong, highly skilled workforce in math, science and technological fields.
IISME's Flagship Program, the IISME Summer Fellowship Program places San Francisco Bay Area K-16 teachers of all subjects into high-performance work sites for the summer. Teachers complete a project for their sponsors and also spend time focusing on ways to transfer their Summer Fellowship experience back to their students and colleagues. In the past 27 years, IISME has offered 2,970 Summer Fellowships to teachers who are helping to inspire your future workforce.
IISME is expanding beyond the San Francisco Bay Area and is now working with companies in San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles counties to provide IISME Fellowships for their STEM teachers as well.
