Taking IT to the Next Level: Why Computer Science is Critical

Youth access and interest in computing is exploding, but despite best intentions, we are now creating generations of tool users rather than tool builders. Dr. Chris Stephenson, Executive Director of the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), looks at the kinds of skills students need to truly thrive in the 21st century. Statistical evidence shows a shortage of CS workers and a continued under engagement of women and minority students. This presentation includes the systemic issues that face CS education, and new resources to address these issues. 101_Taking_IT_To_The_Next_Level.pdf

New Formulas for Americas Workforce: Girls in Science and Engineering

The Research on Gender in Science and Engineering program supports efforts to understand and address gender-based differences in STEM education and workforce participation through research, the diffusion of research-based innovations, and education extension services that aim to lead to a larger and more diverse domestic science engineering workforce. Every NSF funded project is represented by a summary or abstract on the NSF website. "New Formulas for Americas Workforce: Girls in Science and Engineering" is a collection of nearly 10 years' investment in one place, and is written for general audiences. The collection shows how in a relatively short time span the way issues are described and the focus of new work have changed due to increasing knowledge and due to the changing social context of the work.

STEM Out-of-School Time for Girls

The "Research Update" is a series of publications that focus on themes of interest to the out-of-school time field, each related to the evaluations and research studies that are available in the Harvard Family Research Project Out-of-School Time Program Research and Evaluation database and bibliography. The six STEM programs covered in this publication reflect the diversity of approaches to STEM education, including structured afterschool modules, recreational activities, intensive summer trips, and mentoring. These programs mainly serve youth in middle school and high school, with some targeting girls only, and others available to both boys and girls but with a particular focus on girls.
