Shaping Minnesota’s Guide to Quality STEM Learning in Afterschool

Ignite Afterschool and our STEM partners have been hard at work drafting an Effective Practices Guide for STEM learning in afterschool. We invite STEM and afterschool stakeholders to join us for regional input sessions that will shape the next draft of the Guide. Help us define a common understanding of quality STEM learning in afterschool that will further connect and advance both fields!

These meetings are ideal for educators, youth workers, program coordinators, funders, and systems-level leaders in both the STEM and afterschool fields. The meetings will be held at the following locations and dates:
