Description or Abstract: 

The Coalition for Science After School was initiated through two NSF-funded meetings in 2004 and 2005 that brought science education and out-of-school time leaders together to explore strategies for further merging the two fields. Through the second conference, held in Marina del Ray, CA, a blueprint for CSAS was designed and finalized. Under the leadership of an eight-member Executive Committee, an expanded 20-member Steering Committee, and acting director Bronwyn Bevan, CSAS was launched with 40 members. The meeting report, A Blueprint for Action (2007), laid out CSAS priorities and structure.
