Event Title

STEM Smart: Lessons Learned from Successful Schools



Launching the STEM Smart Initiative


On September 19, the NSF hosted a one-day event that served as a launch pad for the NSF-supported report by the National Research Council's (NRC) Board on Science Education and Board on Testing and Assessment: Highly Successful Schools or Programs for K-12 STEM Education. The report presents findings from a May workshop where a committee of experts identified a range of goals for highly successful K-12 STEM education, explored criteria for identifying success relative to those goals, and classified strategies and practices used by K-12 schools and districts to achieve success in STEM. 10/12/2011 Press Release 09/26/2011 Press ReleaseWatch a recording of the event: Flash | Silverlight
