Abstract

Over the past five years, we have created and studied an informal learning STEM program. The results have been very encouraging and led us to examine how our approach and curriculum, originally created for middle school youth, could be used in different context. This paper describes our approach to introducing informal STEM, the challenges we encounter and how we addressed these, and the positive outcomes observed in youth. We then describe the expansion of this framework in other contexts.
