Defining Youth Outcomes for STEM Learning in Afterschool

Afterschool programs are increasingly recognized as playing a valuable role in improving science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. However, the expectations for how such programs support young people's STEM engagement and learning are varied. The Defining Youth Outcomes for STEM Learning in Afterschool study aimed to identify what STEM learning outcomes these program leaders and supporters believe that afterschool programs could contribute to, what the indicators of progress toward such outcomes might be, and what types of evidence could be collected by afterschool programs, without regard to whether or not appropriate data collection tools currently exist.
