Engaging Youth in STEM Outside the Classroom Webinar Recording Available

Offered as a part of ASTC’s Youth Inspired Challenge, Engaging Youth in STEM Outside the Classroom is a three-part webinar series devoted to an in-depth analysis of the field of STEM out-of-school-time education. Led by Jamie Alonzo of the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History and Irene Porro of the MIT Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research, the first webinar in the series took place on Wednesday, July 27, and engaged participants in an interactive discussion on the field of STEM education in out-of-school-time and its role within the broader educational landscape, as well as the need and potential for unification of the field. The recording of the webinar is now available online at Please note that due to bandwidth issues, some slides in the presentation may be slightly blurred. Handouts of the slides are available.

The next two webinars in the series will explore the relationship between formal and informal education sectors and the relationship between STEM in out-of-school time and workforce development.
