Increasing interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) has become part of education reform efforts in recent years. Out-of-school time (OST) programs that focus on girls' involvement in STEM can play an essential role in improving female representation in these traditionally male-dominated fields . However, barriers to quality implementation and outcome-based evaluation present challenges for STEM programs serving girls.
This Research Update highlights findings from the evaluations and research studies in our OST Database that focus on STEM programs for girls.
