We'll be discussing the Afterschool Alliance's newest report, "Defining Youth Outcomes for STEM Learning in Afterschool," to be released that day. On the panel, we'll be joined by Anita Krishnamurthi, director of STEM policy for the Afterschool Alliance and project lead on the report; Ron Ottinger, executive director of the Noyce Foundation and a funder of the report; and Mark Greenlaw, vice president of sustainability and education affairs at Cognizant, which runs the afterschool program Making the Future.
Afterschool programming has increasingly become an outlet for millions of American children, and afterschool providers, when asking for funding, are being asked to define and defend their value. The Alliance's report looks at what kind of outcomes afterschool programming is best suited to deliver in STEM. For anyone interested in improving outcomes in math and science, the use of afterschool programming is crucial. Our discussion will be can't-miss, and we hope to see you there!
