Strategies for Action

Advancements in STEM teaching/learning will be attained when a
wide range of stakeholders work together to achieve a collective
impact.

The work to advance STEM in OST must build on what is currently
known about best practices.

Prior studies have demonstrated the potential for raising student
achievement through high quality OST programming. By extension,
offering students access to high quality OST programs is also a ‘best
practice’.
