YouthLearn welcomes 3rd cohort of ITEST projects

YouthLearn continues its involvement in the ITEST Learning Resource Center, as we welcome and orient the third cohort of projects to be funded by NSF's ITEST Initiative. Projects focus on engaging youth in STEM activities and careers, through youth-based activities or teacher professional development which builds teacher skills in leading cutting edge STEM activities to support learning.

Over the past two years, YouthLearn has organized TA offerings on topics such as: "Active Learning in the Information Age", "Marketing your Program: Tips and Tricks", and "Accessibility: Enhancing your program". Staff members have also supported the ITEST team's efforts in technology infrastructure, marketing, publications, and conference planning, and by serving as TA liaisons to projects.

The Information Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) program was established by the National Science Foundation in direct response to the concern about shortages of information technology workers in the United States. The ITEST program funds projects that provide opportunities for both school-age children and teachers to build the skills and knowledge needed to advance their study and to function and contribute in a technologically rich society. The ITEST program also funds a National Learning Resource Center to support, synthesize and disseminate the learning from the program to a wider audience.
