OST Webinar | Defining Youth Outcomes for STEM Learning Afterschool

Program Dates 
Wednesday, May 15 | 11:00 am - 12:15 pm Pacific

Out-of-school time (OST) can be fertile ground for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning experiences. But what specific benefits for young people should OST STEM deliver, and how can they be measured? What are the implications for the role of OST STEM as schools align to the Common Core mathematics standards and consider the newly released Next Generation Science Standards?
