The CSTL PLANETS team recently published an article in the Afterschool Matters journal on the professional learning support that is needed to meet the varying needs of out-of-school time STEM educators.
Check out the abstract:
Flexibility, opportunities for exploration, and a focus on 21st century skills make out-of-school time (OST) programs an ideal environment for authentic learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM; Committee on STEM Education, 2013; Noam & Shah, 2014). In addition, because OST programs serve significant populations of young people who are underrepresented in STEM, they may be able to reduce the opportunity gap for these youth and help to enhance youth learning and engagement.
