Educators know that providing high quality Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) requires a mix of content, youth development, and instructional coaching, all with a focus on quality and continuous improvement. STEM skills are critical to student success, and necessary for children to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.

 

The Summer STEM Project, led by PCY, guided school district and community partners in order to design and improve learning programs that taught STEM skills. The Summer STEM Brief collects the data from this ground-breaking three-year initiative, and offers best practices, lessons learned, and resources to help districts implement STEM learning in their summer programs.

 

The brief documents why and how STEM education can be successfully integrated into summer learning programs, and the significant positive impacts it can have on students and staff.
