The STEM committee coordinates efforts to improve access to and professional development for STEM activities in out-of-school time settings. The committee is currently working on a STEM in Afterschool brief and preparing to participate in STEM Week at the Capitol.
This initiative is designed to elevate the level of STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math – in afterschool and other informal education settings. Project Liftoff was funded by the Mott Foundation from 2008-2011 and the Noyce Foundation from 2010-2014.
