Description or Abstract: 

During 2008, CSAS worked to document the key projects, resources and people working to incorporate STEM learning opportunities as part of out-of-school time programs. This work resulted in the formation of three communities of practice: Staff Capacity and Professional Development, Development of STEM Learning Activities, and Programs and Program Improvement. The purpose of these communities of practice was to strengthen the intellectual foundation of out-of-school time STEM education, and provide the professionals who serve the out-of-school time field with common concepts, models and vocabulary. The Noyce Foundation provided funding for the Staff Capacity and Professional Development community, which produced a research brief, Staff Capacity and Professional Development for After-School STEM: A Summary of Key Research, and a 2009 report, Strengthening After-School STEM Staff Development.
