Four faculty and student collaborators from the College of Education and the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics gave a presentation entitled “Student Perceptions of STEM and Attitudes toward STEM Workshops at a Youth Organization” at the National Association for Research on Science Teaching in Baltimore in April, 2016. The presenters were:

The presentation focused on youth perceptions of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) before and after technology STEM workshops using educational technology were conducted by teachers last summer at a site of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Long Beach. The project was supported by Fluor, Chevron, and by a grant awarded by the CSU Collaborative for the Advancement of Linked Learning with funding from The James Irvine Foundation.
