#STEMforCompTech

The Board on Science Education of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will host a public workshop on November 4, 2019 to explore issues in STEM education. The workshop will illustrate the various ways in which stakeholders define and conceptualize authentic STEM learning opportunities for young people in grades K-12 in formal and informal settings, and what that means for the goals, design, and implementation of such experiences. Presenters will unpack the state of the evidence on the role of authentic STEM learning opportunities and promising approaches and strategies in the development of interest and competencies for technology and computing fields. A recurring theme throughout the workshop will be implications for increasing diversity and access to authentic STEM learning experiences among underserved young people.
