ITEST Program Continues To Grow

In the past, we've shared with the YouthLearn community our work as part of the team here at EDC assisting National Science Foundation's ITEST (IT Experiences for Students and Teachers) program. YouthLearn team members are liaisons to some of the more than 50 program grantees around the country and create many of the publications that illustrate promising practices reavealed through their efforts. A recent convening of grantees of the program illustrated the dynamic ways that these projects are articulating how IT skill development and STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) learning go hand-in-hand in today's classrooms and afterschool programs.

You can access a full report of the convening at:

or download a PDF summary at:

You might also want to check out our most recent publication, "Engaging Girls and Women in STEM: The Future Workforce." A PDF is available off the ITEST Learning Resource Center at:

And later this spring, YouthLearn will be moderating a roundtable of ITEST programs exploring how to foster media and information literacy through science and math activities. We'll keep you updated!
