Out-of-School Time STEAM Survey
The Innovation Collaborative is conducting a national study that will help outline effective practices for STEAM (STEM+Arts). The first national study of its kind, your participation could help determine what constitute an effective STEAM program in a broad range of out-of-school settings and provide the foundational research base for the out-of-school STEAM movement. This research will provide validated strategies and tools that out-of-school educators can use to assure that their STEAM practices have the maximum effectiveness in promoting vital innovative thinking skills. Any out-of-school educator serving early childhood through higher education students can participate by completing a brief survey by March 31.
