Three AAAS programs introduce children to STEM careers through hands-on activities and interaction with scientists.

Ensuring that current and future teachers of science, technology, engineering and mathematics have strong support networks emerged as an important strategy for retaining well-trained educators in school districts most in need of them, according to presenters and attendees of the 2019 Noyce Summit.

Science in the Summer aims to get elementary school students excited about science and avoid the well-documented “summer slide” phenomenon.

Presentations by Elizabeth DiGangi, SUNY Binghamton; Annette Lee, St. Cloud State University; and Fatimah Jackson, Howard University at Indiana University on April 1, 2019.

The real-world expertise of scientists and engineers volunteering in elementary, middle and high school classrooms is more important than ever — a role that the AAAS STEM Volunteer Program is filling as it celebrates its 15th anniversary.
