Transition Points: Snapshots of a STEM Journey

April 5, 2023 | Exhibitions, Public Programs

This series of research briefs is a look at how a STEM-focused museum youth development program prepared youth for college, through their own voices. Aimed at both practitioners and research-practitioners, the intent is to share what youth identified as being impactful to them about the Museum’s youth development program. It includes both successes and challenges youth faced as they adapted to their post-high school academic career.
